The CORE MPO has Released a Participation Plan Survey

The Coastal Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (CORE MPO) is currently updating its Participation Plan and has released a survey to gather public input. Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ParticipationPlan

The Participation Plan is a document that lays out how the CORE MPO will conduct public outreach. Specifically, this plan details the methods that the CORE MPO will use to keep the public informed about transportation topics, issues, and projects and also ensure that this information is accessible to everyone.

We invite you to take this short survey and pass it along to other people so we can get as much input as possible.


Plan2040 Logo Chatham County, Garden City, Pooler, and Savannah are asking residents to share their ideas and visions for the future of our communities.
