MinnesotaGO Releases Draft Vision; Schedules Hearing

Minnesota GOMnDOT, via the MinnesotaGO project, has been working on a draft vision for transportation over the next 50 years in Minnesota. Following the state-wide MinnesotaGO public meetings for the project, they have now released the draft statement for the vision.

Now that the vision has been drafted, MnDOT has invited participants in the process and interested bystanders to a public hearing to be held on October 4, 2011, from 4:00-5:30 PM. Participants can get involved in one of three ways:

  • Live, at the Transportation Bldg., 395 John Ireland Blvd, Room G15, in Saint Paul.
  • Online, using Adobe Connect. To participate, go to http://mndot.adobeconnect.com/minnesotago/ The Adobe Connect meeting will be open beginning at 3:30PM  on the date of the meeting.
  • Via via videoconference at MnDOT offices statewide.
This is an interesting exercise in public feedback. It will be interesting to see how this hearing influences the current draft — and what the actual outcomes of having this vision will be.
