Sun Coast Transportation Planning Alliance launches survey about regional MPO

The Tampa Bay Partnership is working to raise community awareness of a community survey regarding the potential for a regional Metropolitan Planning Organization.

The Sun Coast Transportation Planning Alliance has created a five-minute community survey to obtain feedback from residents from Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.

Maximum engagement in the Community Survey is critical to establish a true sense of community sentiment around this opportunity, said Bemetra Simmons, chief executive officer and president of the Tampa Bay Partnership, in an email to Tampa Bay Business and Wealth.

The survey can be found here.
