MANATEE COUNTY, FL (Aug. 5, 2021) – Manatee County Transportation Planning Division is seeking public input for a Mobility Plan that will help meet the growing needs of pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists in Manatee County.
From now through the end of August, County residents are encouraged to visit www.mymanatee.org/mobility to view a short video about the first phase of the Mobility Plan: Establishing Vision. People can also provide feedback on the survey on that area of the site.
“With pedestrian and cyclists accounting for a quarter of traffic fatalities in Manatee County, it’s important to ensure safe planning on our streets,” said Nelson Galeano, Transportation Planning Division Manager. “The Mobility Plan will be an important foundation to ensuring coexistence – instead of competition – on our roadways for safety and choice of transportation options.”
Results from the survey will provide the County with valuable insight to identify areas of improvement and engagement.
The Manatee County Mobility Plan aims to provide safe and sufficient access to transportation options to improve Manatee County’s quality of life, through quality infrastructure improvements. The Mobility Plan, expected to be complete in the Spring of 2022, will include future workshops and other opportunities for the public to provide feedback in the coming months.
