SRPEDD Announces a 21-day Public Comment Period and a Remote Public Meeting to hear comments for the draft FFY2021 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), as well as for amendments to the FFY2020 UPWP.
May 19, 2020 – The draft FFY2021 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is being released for public comment. The present FFY2020 UPWP is being amended to adjust work tasks changed due to the state of emergency, and to add projects to the work plan. As a result, there needs to be a reallocation of funds. The amendments include a proposed Covid-19 Outreach Study, Trails Mapping Study and Freight Action Plan.
The UPWP identifies, in a single document, all of the annual transportation planning activities that are to be undertaken in the Southeastern Massachusetts Metropolitan Area which is also the SRPEDD region, from October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2021.
A public meeting to hear comments and concerns on these amendments will be held remotely on Wednesday, May 27 from 4-6 PM due to the state of emergency in Massachusetts. Everyone is welcome to attend, ask questions and offer comments. The meeting will be conducted through the Microsoft ZOOM APP. This link provides the information to allow participants to connect to the meeting through a computer, smart phone or regular telephone. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/categories/200101697 . The direct link to the meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/7976187767 . We ask for patience while we work out the issues with this new meeting process.
These amendments and the draft UPWP will become final on June 16, 2020 at the next SMMPO meeting.
