The Town of Harrisburg is creating a Community Transportation Plan (CTP) to identify the transportation needs for motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians and transit in the community. The community-driven planning process will establish a vision for the transportation system in Harrisburg, identify needs and deficiencies, recommend specific projects and strategies and create an action plan for implementation. The planning process kicked off in June 2019. The CTP is expected to be adopted in October 2020.
The project team held two steering committee meetings and a public workshop, as well as distributed an online survey. The public workshop was held in the Council Chambers on October 24, 2019 and was attended by 21 people. Individuals who participated in the workshop had the opportunity to engage with Town staff, learn about existing conditions and share their thoughts about transportation needs. The online survey was live from October 24 to November 21, 2019 and gathered feedback from 201 individuals. View survey results.
Currently, Town staff are reviewing the preliminary recommendations. Once reviewed, the project team will work to provide cost estimates and identify priority projects for the Town. In February 2020, the Steering Committee reconvened to review the recommendations and provide feedback.
The second workshop (public meeting) that was scheduled to review the Harrisburg Community Transportation Plan (CTP) was canceled due to COVID-19.
Staff presented the DRAFT to the Town Council on September 14 and the CTP will be on the Town Council agenda for adoption in October 2020.
