Looking Ahead 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)

Looking Ahead 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)

Provide us your comments on the proposed visioning themes.

The MTP is a long-range, multimodal, surface transportation plan that identifies a regional vision for transportation and the steps necessary to achieve that vision. By Federal regulation, MTPs must have a planning horizon of at least 20 years and must be updated no less than every five years.

In 2021 we asked you to share your transportation stories with us – the things that worked well and the things that needed to be improved upon. Through our combined engagement efforts, we received nearly 2,000 comments from central Minnesotans. APO staff were able to boil those comments down into six main “visioning” themes – the blueprint of where the Saint Cloud metropolitan area should be headed over the next 25 years:

  • System and Environmental Stewardship.

  • Multimodal Connections.

  • Congestion Management.

  • Transportation Safety.

  • Interregional Connections.

  • Technological Advancements.

Between now and Tuesday, Jan. 31, we want to know – Did we hear you correctly? Should these themes remain a priority for the region?
