Help Shape the Future of Transportation in Pinellas County
Pinellas County, Fla. -- The Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is focused on improving transportation throughout the county and has kicked off an effort to create a 30-year blueprint for the entire county transportation system.
Through new and innovative methods of participation, such as www.TellUsPinellas.com, YOU can help shape the county’s transportation plan!
www.TellUsPinellas.com is being used to ask people like you – residents and commuters who know the transportation system best – what your thoughts are on different topics concerning our transportation system: What do you consider is the most critical need for Pinellas County’s transportation system today? What type of transportation improvements would you like to see in Pinellas County?
Within each topic, web users have the ability to suggest ideas, agree with others’ ideas they support, and provide insight on how residents and commuters will be affected by the plan.
Some topics currently on the site include:
• Important needs for the county’s transportation system
• Congestion hot spots
• Safety concerns on roadways, sidewalks, trails, or anywhere else
Visit www.TellUsPinellas.com to learn more about the transportation plan, and stay informed during the different phases of the planning process. You can also follow the organization on Twitter for updates, news, and exciting opportunities to get involved at @TellUsPinellas.
