30 DAY PUBLIC REVIEW/COMMENT PERIOD (DECEMBER 29, 2021 – JANUARY 31, 2022)
The Kingsport Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization (MTPO) is responsible for long range transportation planning in the Kingsport urbanized area. Before regionally significant transportation projects can be undertaken, they must be included in the MTPO’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). The LRTP is a 20+ year plan for transportation projects in the Kingsport area. The Kingsport MTPO Executive Board is seeking public comment on an amendment to the current 2040 LRTP. Copies of the proposed amendment are available for public review at the Kingsport Public Library, the lobby of Kingsport City Hall, and the Kingsport MTPO office, and can be viewed HERE. Comments received about the amendment will be considered by the MTPO Executive Board prior to final approval. Comments may be sent to MTPO@KingsportTN.gov by 5:00 pm (Eastern Time) on January 31, 2022. Comments can also be made at the MTPO Executive Board meeting on February 3, 2022.
