Gwinnett County is seeking input from all of its residents on the Destination 2040 Comprehensive Transportation Plan.

According to the County, the CTP “serves as a roadmap for how transportation will develop in Gwinnett County. This effort, funded by Gwinnett County and the Atlanta Regional Commission, will examine the many changes that have occurred in the county’s population, employment, land use, and development since the adoption of the last CTP. Gwinnett County’s updated plan will focus on all modes of transportation including roadways and bridges, transit, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and freight, as well as the Gwinnett County airport.”

The last CTP was adopted in 2008 and the County acknowledges the significant changes in the area since then. The Comprehensive Transportation Plan update is a 20-month-long process, and begins by determining what has changed since the previous plan. The process also seeks to understand what is happening now in Gwinnett. Draft recommendations will be presented to the public and the final plan will be presented to the County Board of Commissioners for adoption in early 2017.

The deadline to share your thoughts is May 31st, so you’ll need to hurry if you want your voice to be heard. You can fill out the County’s survey here.
