PRESS RELEASE: Scioto County Mobility Transportation Plan Public Forum #2


Scioto County Coordinated Transit Draft Plan Ready for Public Review and Feedback

January 14, 2021, Waverly OH –

The Ohio Valley Regional Development Commission (OVRDC) and Access Scioto County are undergoing a process to update the Scioto County Coordinated Transit Plan. The process began in October 2020 and will wrap up in Spring 2021.

The Coordinated Transit Plan is a four-year coordinated plan designed for Public and Human Services Transportation. The purpose of the Plan is to understand the unmet transportation needs of people in Scioto County, and to provide goals and priorities for agencies and companies providing transportation services to the community. The plan assists with securing funding for these services.

Whether you get around by driving your own car, using paratransit, or catching a ride with a friend, we want to hear from you!

The Draft Plan is available for you to review!

We are accepting comments through February 19.

To visit the workgroup website and archived documents and notes, please visit the Scioto County Participate in the Planning Process tab at the Burton Planning website.

Please participate in one of the two virtual Public Forums on Wednesday, January 27 from 12PM – 1PM or 6PM – 7PM to hear about the Draft Plan and give your thoughts on it. These meetings will be held virtually via Zoom with a telephone call-in option. Recordings of the meetings will be available on the project website.
