The Polk Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) is seeking comments from the public on the Citrus Connection (LAMTD) Draft Transportation Development Plan Annual Update, (TDP). The Transportation Development Plan serves as the application for the Transit system’s Block Grant.
The State of Florida Public Transit Block Grant Program was enacted by the Florida Legislature to provide a stable source of funding for public transit. The Block Grant Program requires public transit service providers to develop, adopt, and annually update a Ten-Year Transit Development Plan (TDP).
The comment period for the Draft Transportation Development Plan Annual Update, began on July 13, 2020, and will be accepted through August 11, 2020. After the comment period closes and all input has been considered, the draft plan will be presented for final adoption to the LAMTD Board at their meeting on August 13, 2020, with at least seven (7) days public notice. Printed copies of the Plan are available upon request. Anyone interested in submitting a comment may do so by contacting Julia Davis, Senior Transportation Planner, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, mail to 330 West Church Street, Bartow, FL 33831, or call (863) 534-6529.
