MoDOT to hold public open houses on regional transportation project lists for proposed sales tax

public-transportationMoDOT and the regional planning commissions across the state will hold open house meetings to ask residents and stakeholders to weigh in on regional and community transportation priorities that will accompany the transportation measure (Amendment 7) on the August 5 ballot- the proposed 3/4 percent general sales tax for transportation.

This August, Missouri voters will be asked to decide on a ballot measure to temporarily raise the sales tax by ¾ of a cent with all proceeds going toward needed transportation improvements statewide. Prior to the election, MoDOT will release a list of funding priorities for each region for the proposed revenue increase.

In order to engage the community around the final draft of regional and community priorities, MoDOT is hosting multiple open houses in each of Missouri’s seven districts. In addition, there will be several other opportunities for the public to weigh in with their regional and community priorities through the project website and a mobile feedback tour.

Here is the opportunity for CMT members and friends to weigh in on the importance of transit and transit projects demonstrating vision for the future of our region and state being included on the lists.
