Four Points Chamber to host CAMPO transportation plan meeting on January 27th7pm at Austin Christian Fellowship Student Cente

FOUR POINTS, AUSTIN TX – Four Points, Lakeway and Cedar Park traffic congestion is not fun to deal with for those who travel in our area.  Do you want to see transportation improvements to the Four Points Area and western Travis County? Our area does not currently have any major improvements included in long term planning, but you can get involved and weigh in on finding a solution.

The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Four Points Chamber of Commerce invite all the communities to the south of Lake Travis and along the western RM 620 corridor to a CAMPO Mobile Meeting at 7 p.m. January 27th at Austin Christian Fellowship Student Center, 6401 River Place Blvd, Austin, TX 78730.

The Mobile Meeting is one of several ways the public can help planners identify potential future transportation projects in CAMPO’s 2040 Regional Transportation Plan.

Attendees are encouraged to generate ideas, provide feedback and get information, project materials, fact sheets and maps.

CAMPO is the agency that approves the use of federal transportation funds in this region that includes 1.8 million people in Travis, Hays, Williamson, Burnet, Bastrop and Caldwell counties. It will soon begin the evaluation process to determine which projects are included in the plan for this region that is projected to have 4.1 million people in 2040.

The CAMPO 2040 Plan Vision is to develop a comprehensive multimodal regional transportation system that safely and efficiently addresses mobility needs over time, is economically viable, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable, supports regional quality of life and promotes travel options.

“We urge our community to get involved and help with building the solution to our area growth and roadway improvements into the future.  This is one of our opportunities to help shape the solution for our area.  We expect to have an interactive brainstorming session with CAMPO,” said Ray Freer, Chairman of the Four Points Chamber.
