The final draft of Newport’s Transportation Master Plan is posted online at www.keepnewportmoving.com – and it’s a wealth of reviews, ideas, and recommendations to improve traffic flow, reduce traffic congestion, and take bold steps to make getting around Newport as delightful an experience as being here. Remote parking, shuttles, bicycling, and walking are all prioritized in the effort to improve health, economy, environment, and quality of place.
Public comment is encouraged and can be contributed online through December 7th. After that time, the recommendations will be finalized and then presented to the City Council.
Lots of work has gone into the plan, and hopefully lots of respect and support will paid to it. Now is your chance to review the final draft and submit any additional thoughts before it is finalized. We’re doing the same and we’ll publish some of our final suggestions in the coming days.
If you favor a hard copy, come by Bike Newport at 62 Broadway and you can flip through one of our copies at your leisure.
It’s a great read.
