County Metro Planning 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan Public Input Opportunities

St. Clair County Metro Planning is seeking public input on its 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan which is currently being updated. The 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan is an essential element of an agency’s transportation planning process.  This plan has a 25-year planning horizon and guides the development of our transportation system with goals/objectives, performance measures, and project prioritization. This document serves as the foundation for the development of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), a fiscally constrained, four-year planning tool that programs all federal transportation funds spent in St. Clair County.

Trails Strategy & Action Plan – Community Input Meetings December 11, 2018

St. Clair County, along with the Community Foundation of St. Clair County and numerous local and regional partners, is developing an updated Trails Strategy and Action Plan that will identify existing gaps in countywide non-motorized trail networks, identify preferred alternatives to eliminate those gaps, and prioritize the timing and sequencing for completing needed connections.  Our ultimate goal is to complete the Bridge to Bay Trail and Wadhams to Avoca trail networks, which includes connecting to the Macomb Orchard Trail and the Great Lake-to-Lake Trail.  The County has hired SmithGroup, a consulting firm out of Ann Arbor, to carry out this project. Funding assistance for this project is being provided through a Multi-Community Planning Assistance grant from the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments and a grant from the Community Foundation of St. Clair County.

A series of community meetings will be held throughout the process.  The first two community meetings will be held on Tuesday, December 11. On that day, an early meeting will be held from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm in the Don Dodge Auditorium at the St. Clair County Administration Building, 200 Grand River Avenue, Port Huron, MI 48060. Later that same day, a second meeting will be held from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Sperry’s 2nd Floor Dinnerhouse, 301 Huron Avenue, Port Huron, MI 48060.
