Notice is hereby given that the Bismarck-Mandan Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will hold a public hearing on Tuesday January 19, 2021 at 10 a.m. regarding proposed amendments to the Bismarck-Mandan 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP). The meeting will be held in conjunction with the regularly scheduled meeting of the Bismarck-Mandan MPO Technical Advisory Committee in the Tom Baker Meeting Room of the City/County Office Building at 221 N. 5th Street, Bismarck, ND.
The purpose of the public hearing is to provide an opportunity for public involvement in the review of proposed amendments to the 2021-2024 TIP. The TIP includes federally funded metropolitan area transportation projects over a four-year time frame. The proposed amendments are intended to reconcile the programmed projects contained in the Bismarck-Mandan MPO 2021-2024 TIP with those included in the State Transportation Improvement Program.
Further, the public is notified that the proposed amendments to the 2021-2024 TIP will be available on the MPO webpage beginning Monday, January 4, 2021. The proposed amendments will also be available for citizens to review at the Bismarck Community Development Office, 221 North 5th Street, Bismarck, North Dakota. Following the consideration period of citizen’s comments, the proposed amendments will be presented to the MPO Policy Board for possible adoption as part of the 2021-2024 TIP, contingent upon no substantive change required due to public comments.
The public is invited to attend the public hearing, or submit written comments directed to Rachel Drewlow of the MPO no later than 9am Tuesday, January 19, 2021 to P.O. Box 5503, Bismarck, ND, 58506.
