We want to hear from you!
Community input and perspectives will play an important role in the Newton County TMP, with community engagement and public input acting as vital components. Opportunities for public input will be available throughout the life of the project.
We collected input from Newton County community members via a brief, online survey. Results will help inform the planning process and help craft Newton County’s transit vision. The survey closed on June 6th. Thanks to the 800+ folks who participated!
Subscribe to the TMP mailing list for project updates and to learn more about upcoming public input opportunities.
The planning team will hold a series of three community meetings. The meetings will align with key stages in the planning process, including the Current and Future Conditions Analysis, Transit Service Needs and Market Analysis, and when draft Service Strategies, Investment Scenarios, and Transit Master Plan recommendations are made.
The first meeting, aligned with the Current and Future Conditions Analysis stage, occurred on May 27, 2021. See below for more information on the first meeting.
More information will be posted as dates are set! Please check back for updates.
