Public Open House on July 31 to collect input on the Metropolitan Transportation Plan project list
Bannock Transportation Planning Organization (BTPO) will hold a public open house on Wednesday, July 31 to collect feedback from the public as it updates the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The open house will be held at the Pocatello City Hall, 911 North 7th Avenue, from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. The open house format will allow individuals to view information and visit with project staff anytime between those hours. “We encourage everyone to come out and learn about the MTP process and review the future traffic patterns and projects identified to improve the transportation network.
The MTP provides a twenty-year approach to identify transportation problems in the region and provide a guide to potential solutions. The BTPO planning area runs from Portneuf Gap north along the Pocatello and Bannock Mountain ranges until it reaches the Fort Hall Indian Reservation. It is just over 100 square miles and includes the Cities of Pocatello and Chubbuck.
