Reminder: Transportation Moves Wisconsin tour heads to Green Bay/Oshkosh
May 7, 2014
Green Bay town hall meeting set for today - Wednesday, May 7; Oshkosh tomorrow - Thursday, May 8
A statewide public outreach effort to collect citizen input on Wisconsin’s transportation needs and challenges will come to Green Bay today, May 7 and Oshkosh tomorrow, May 8. Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Secretary Mark Gottlieb is hosting the public town hall meetings as part of the department’s "Transportation Moves Wisconsin" initiative.
"The goal of this initiative is to give more visibility to the state’s multimodal transportation system and to engage people around the state in talking about how it impacts their lives," Secretary Gottlieb said. "The feedback we receive will be important in the development of the next state transportation budget."
Both meetings begin with an open house at 5 p.m., Secretary Gottlieb’s presentation at 5:30 p.m., followed by public discussion:
Wednesday, May 7, Green Bay
US 41 Project Office
1940 West Mason Street, Green Bay, Wisconsin
Thursday, May 8, Oshkosh
UW Alumni and Conference Center
625 Pearl Avenue, Oshkosh, Wisconsin
Staff with WisDOT’s Northeast Region will be available at both meetings to answer questions about area transportation projects, but the meeting is focused on broader issues and the need to identify new revenue to make infrastructure investments in all modes of transportation.
Along with attending one of the public town hall meetings, people can also submit comments to the department via the web. Go to the WisDOT home page and click on the "Transportation Moves Wisconsin" logo.
