Page 10 Input needed by MnDOT MnDOT seeks public comments on 50-year transportation system vision Public hearing scheduled Oct. 4, comments accepted through ;ct. 21 The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites pub- lic comments through Oct. 21 on a draft 50-year vision for trans- portation in the state. The vision was developed with input from the public and diverse represen- tatives of the transportation com- munity who participated in advi- sory group meetings, public work- shops and online during the past several months. Beginning Sept. 22, the pub- lic can view the seven-page doc- ument at the Minnesota GO web- site, www.minnesotago.org, and share their thoughts online, by e-mail, fax or U.S. mail. MnDOT will accept comments until 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21. In addition, MnDOT will host a public hearing Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., at the Trans- portation Building in St. Paul, 395 John Ireland Blvd., Room G15. The public also may participate via vid- eoconference at MnDOT offices statewide (see locations below) or from their personal computers by using Adobe Connect (instruc- tions will be posted on www. minnesotago.org). Print copies of the draft vision will be available at the meeting sites. SPO00.T Com m__.00ity Calendar Thursday, September29, 2011 E,tuc,00tio. Government In February 2011, MnDOT launched the Minnesota GO visioning process in collaboration with many partners to better align the transportation system with what Minnesotans expect for their quality of life, economy and natu- ral environment. The document consists of a vision statement and guiding prin- ciples, as well as a broad look at the desired outcomes. The vision rec- ognizes that transportation infra- structure is only one of the many elements to achieving a high qual- ity of life, a competitive economy and a healthy environment. MnDOT and other transpor- tation organizations will use the vision and information from this project in developing short-term and long-term plans. The vision will offer guidance in determining the transportation initiatives that the state chooses for investment.
