The Future of the LANTA Transportation System
The Lehigh And Northampton County Transportation Authority, LANTA, will hold six meetings in the region over the next three days where they hope to have the residents of the Lehigh Valley come hear a review of the transportation development plan and provide input for the future of the Valley’s transportation system. The development plan, along with the Land Use Planning Tool element, will be the center of the discussion. Each day, a meeting will be held at 3:00PM and 7:00PM at the day’s assigned location:
• Monday, June 22, Lehigh County Government Center, 7th Street, Allentown
• Tuesday, June 23, Bethlehem City Hall Rotunda
• Wednesday, June 24, United Church of Christ, 27 N. 3rd St., Easton
Over the past year, LANTA has launched a campaign entitled “Move LANTA forward.” The campaign’s blog chronicles and describes some of the recent actions undertaken by LANTA, as part of the effort to assess the transportation needs of the Lehigh Valley and, additionally, to put forward major recommendations for restructuring and improving the current system.
In a January Crossroads post, the four phase plan of LANTA was briefly described. This week’s meetings will provide an update of that plan and a chance for the public to ask follow-up questions.
Please attend one of the six meetings of the next three days to learn more about the LANTA plans for transportation improvements in the Lehigh Valley.
