Multimodal Moscow — Drop-in workshops aim to develop transportation plan
The City of Moscow has developed drop-in workshops for city residents to help develop a transportation plan for the city called Moscow on the Move — Multimodal Transportation Plan Drop-in Workshops.
These workshops will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 9-10 at One World Café in downtown Moscow.
Moscow on the Move started in April 2012 and is a guide to a long-range plan.
“(It’s) a twenty-year strategy that prioritizes short and long-term improvements to the pedestrian and bicycle environment, local transit service and the citywide roadway network,” said Kevin Lily, Moscow City Engineer.
The workshops are used to help identify different transportation projects citizens feel are needed throughout the city, while also educating community members about the transportation opportunities that already exist in Moscow, Lily said.
The workshops are created to allow people to stay for as long — or as short — as they want, and people can choose from two different days to go to, he said.
Citizens will be able to see the plans process and view practices of transportation in other university towns similar to Moscow, he said.
