The City of Quincy is hosting an open house for the public on Tuesday, August 20.
The city is looking to gather input on the transportation needs and priorities for Quincy and the surrounding region.
“Well it’s important for us as we look at the realignment of the Memorial Bridge and all the projects that are in the capital bill,that we get feedback from our constituents about how they move about our community, not only includes in your cars but walking and biking,” Mayor Kyle Moore said.
Participants will meet with consultants from Lochmueller Group and help shape ideas and identify problem areas, challenges, assets, and opportunities for different types of transportation including freight, pedestrian safety, traffic and congestion concerns, downtown connectivity, the Memorial Bridge replacement, and parking, according to organizers.
“We want everyone to feel like they can come, we want a wide variety of community members to come and talk to us,” Maggie Strong with the Quincy Next Strategic Plan said. “We want to be able to tell the state and the federal government what we want as a community and this public open house, helps us do that.”
Light snacks and drinks will be provided along with activities for kids.
The open house is from 5:00 p.m .- 6:30 p.m. inside the Quincy University Hall of Fame Room in the Fitness Center, located at 1901 Oak Street.
The Quincy Next Plan outlines 100+ different implementation recommendations and initiatives including those related to the regional transportation network, according to a news release.
