The City is beginning the process of updating our transportation system plan and we’d like your input and participation in this process. As part of the update to our transportation plan, we will be identifying near - and long - term projects that will serve our community’s active transportation needs. A key objective of the plan is to help us further realize our goal of being a green transportation community as well as improve our quality of life and support economic prosperity in Ashland. The process of updating our transportation system plan is just beginning and will extend through approximately November 2011.

To help you stay informed about upcoming opportunities to provide input and comments, we have developed this project website that will include information about upcoming meetings, provide draft documents for review and will solicit public input.
