Bicycles, freight, downtown Dover Parking and more are on the meeting agenda of the Public Advisory Committee for the Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization, set for 6 p.m. Aug. 22 in Room 221 of the Kent County Levy Court Administrative Complex, 555 S. Bay Road, Dover.
PAC members are set to discuss and vote upon a final draft of the MPO's updated Regional Bicycle Plan for Kent County. The PAC's vote serves as a recommendation to the MPO Council. A public comment period for the plan started July 8 and expired Aug. 9.
In addition, the PAC is set to discuss the progress of a parking study for downtown Dover that MPO and city of Dover staff have been working on for several months.
Other items on the agenda include a vote regarding a proposed change to the MPO's fiscal 2018-21 Transportation Improvement Program. The amendment is due to DART's purchase of two buses in fiscal 2018. The PAC also is set to vote on a letter of concurrence about DelDOT's use of congestion mitigation and air quality program funds, discuss amendments to the Delmarva Freight Plan and hold its annual election for PAC leadership.
The PAC is comprised of volunteers from the community. The group ensures that the MPO receives input from the public regarding all transportation plans, programs and policies that the MPO Council adopts. PAC members are appointed. They are business and civic leaders and citizens from diverse backgrounds interested in planning and transportation.
