A regional transportation plan and the community’s thoughts about it will be the focus of a lunch series’ meeting next week.

The informational event will be held at Genoa Township Hall on Wednesday, September 13th, from 12 to 1:30pm. The Livingston County Department of Planning’s quarterly Brown Bag Lunch Series will host guest speakers from the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, or SEMCOG. Presenters will discuss the development of the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan they say will meet Southeast Michigan’s evolving transportation needs.

The plan is expected to incorporate public outreach, data analysis, and new travel and demographic forecasts. It is scheduled for adoption in March 2019. This Brown Bag Lunch session is one of several public meetings that SEMCOG has scheduled throughout the region seeking residents’ input on their priorities for the transportation system. Attendees are reminded to bring their own lunch. RSVP is appreciated and can be done by emailing KKline-Hudson@livgov.com or SBarb@livgov.com.

Anyone who is unable to attend the afternoon meeting can attend a second meeting which will be held at the same location and same date from 5:30 to 7pm.
