Metro is seeking feedback from people throughout the Portland Metropolitan Area on how they live, work and get around the region today and what changes they would like to see in the future. To participate, visit www.makeagreatplace.org by Monday, May 5 to take a short survey and provide more detailed feedback on the following plans and programs:
- 2014 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)
- Regional Active Transportation Plan (RATP)
- 2015-18 Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP)

Documents related to these programs, which include proposed projects from Clackamas County and cities within the county, are available for public review at www.oregonmetro.gov/rtp and www.oregonmetro.gov/mtip, or by calling 503-797-1776. The final approved plans will affect what projects will be eligible for regional, state and federal funding in the coming years.
