From the Partnership for Smarter Growth we’re informed of a chance to let our voices be heard on what direction we take in moving people and goods in and around RVA in the coming years.
The Richmond Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (RAMPO) is developing plan2035, the Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) for the Richmond Region. The LRTP is a financially constrained plan for improving connectivity and mobility to benefit economic and community development in the Region, advancing the planning targets of the federal Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: a Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) transportation program.
