Time for Public Comment!

Picture of thinking emoji with large thinking cloud over its head. Cloud has text that reads "Got big thoughts?" Under emoji is text that says "Lucky you! Public comment period is open!"

FAMPO just opened a public review and comment period for the Fredericksburg region’s Draft FY21-24 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), as well as a related draft air quality conformity analysis. The TIP is a document that details transportation projects that are prioritized to receive federal funding over the next four years. The air quality conformity analysis is required when projects will add vehicle capacity. The comment period for both is open for 30 days and will close on April 2, 2020.

Why should you care?

Transportation projects impact your community, quality of life and access to jobs, services and opportunities. FAMPO recognizes your transportation system should work for you. By giving feedback on the TIP, you help us make informed decisions.

What can you comment on?

After you review the TIP projects, you may want to comment on:

  • How projects impact your community
  • Whether projects fit the region’s transportation needs
  • How projects affect your ability to get around

How to review and comment-

Visit the FAMPO public involvement webpage to learn about the TIP and related air quality conformity analysis. On this page you’ll find links to review and comment on each document.

For the TIP review, we’ve provided an interactive project map, as well as a set of demographic maps that will help you visualize how projects might impact protected groups. There’s also information on related public involvement events and the formal public hearing on March 16th.
