Town hall meeting scheduled for Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock citizens will have an opportunity to talk transportation at a town hall meeting scheduled next week.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is partnering with the Lubbock Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to host the town hall meeting at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 31 in the City of Lubbock Council Chambers, 1625 13th Street.

TxDOT, along with the Lubbock MPO and other local transportation representatives, will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on projects and funding, including a brief perspective on regional infrastructure requirements for the future.

"It's important to engage Texans in the discussion—to bring citizens to the table so they can contribute to shaping our future transportation system and participate in the statewide funding conversation," said Amadeo Saenz, TxDOT executive director.

Citizens are encouraged to attend these meetings and provide feedback on regional transportation issues. The information received will be used to help Texas plan and develop an efficient transportation system—one that is sophisticated enough to meet the needs of future generations, he noted.

Lubbock MPO Director David Jones emphasized the importance of transportation to regional development and a healthy economy.

"Transportation and associated services touch every facet of everyone's daily routine," he noted. "At this meeting, citizens will have an opportunity to talk directly to the TxDOT leadership about current transportation issues or concerns. I encourage everyone to attend and participate in the discussion."

A webcast link will be available on the TxDOT home page. Viewers can participate in the town hall via the Internet and have an opportunity to submit questions during the meeting.
