Collin County is updating the Mobility Plan, which identifies transportation needs of area citizens and guides major transportation investments. Originally developed in 1998, the Mobility Plan identifies a network of existing and proposed roadways, transit, and hike-and-bike trails and is intended to serve the projected population and employment growth and travel demand throughout the county. The year-long plan update will address changes in development conditions and transportation needs that have occurred since the plan was last updated five years ago.

The public meeting will include an overview of the proposed update to the county's current plan, an explanation of the steps taken to update that plan, and an opportunity for residents to review and comment on the current draft of the plan. Citizens are invited to comment on the needed transportation improvements including roadways, transit, and pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Comments will be recorded and incorporated into the study.
