Input on city transportation plan sought from W. Chandler residents

Chandler has been updating its transportation master plan and is inviting west Chandler residents and their citywide neighbors to comment on the draft final report.
A public meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3, in the City Council Chambers in Chandler’s downtown library at 22 S. Delaware St.
The plan was last updated in 2001 and guides development and implementation of future transportation infrastructure.
The draft plan is more comprehensive than prior plans, incorporating transit and bicycle/pedestrian plans that previously were updated independently.
The draft plan was developed using input from a prior public meeting, stakeholder meetings, citizen surveys, planners, consultants and the Chandler Transportation Commission.
Residents are invited to meet with city officials to discuss the plan’s recommendations for future roadway, bicycle, pedestrian and transit improvements, as well as any topic related to the city’s transportation system.
Comment is also being sought on the future-conditions projections used to forecast future service levels and infrastructure needs.
Comments received at the Dec. 3 meeting will be used to prepare the plan for submission to the Transportation Commission at its Dec. 17 meeting. A finalized recommendation will be submitted to the City Council for review in January.
Chandler’s Transportation Master Plan Update Draft Final Report can be viewed on the Transportation page of the city’s Web site, www.chandleraz.gov. Copies also have been placed in the Sunset branch library on Ray Road as well as at other city libraries.
Comments can be mailed, emailed or faxed to Jess Segovia, Parsons Brinckerhoff, 1501 W. Fountainhead Parkway, Suite 400, Tempe, AZ 85282. Fax: (480) 966-9234. Email: segovia@pbworld.com
