communities and currently includes projects with work scheduled from
fiscal years 2021 through 2024. This update helps maintain consistency
with State project programming documents and the RPC Long Range
Transportation Plan (LRTP). Copies of all documents are available on the
RPC public engagement portal linked at https://www.publicinput.com/2021TIP as well as the RPC website at https://www.therpc.org/TIPAmendments. Copies will also be mailed to interested parties by request.

There is an option to participate in the meeting via zoom webinar. Please check the public engagement portal or the RPC website for the most up-to-date information on how to access the meeting. The Planning Commission will meet after the public hearing to adopt the changes to the TIP.
