GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Is there an intersection on your daily commute that's a near-constant headache? A road where you seem to pass more fender benders than any other? The City of Grants Pass says that it is looking for feedback from people to develop a new Transportation System Plan.
“We use our roads and bridges every day as we move throughout our city, and we are planning for the future,” said Jason Canady, director of Grants Pass Public Works.
Canady said that he wants to know how people travel through town, and details about the areas they feel are the most difficult. In order to help obtain that information, his department has set up an online “Open House” where residents can answer questions about possible transportation improvements and provide feedback.
“Resident insight is valuable, and we appreciate any feedback they can give us,” Canady said.
The forum gives background information on the plan and its ultimate goals, plus information about "key problem areas" that the City has already identified, and recommended improvements that are already on the horizon. There will also be questions for local residents and opportunities for them to leave comments, information on how that feedback will be used, and how residents can remain informed on the process.
To participate in the online forum, residents can visit the city’s website or follow the link here.
