Public Hearing will be held on May 28th, beginning at 12 noon in the Senator Hearing Room in Courthouse Square (555 Court Se NE, Salem Oregon) for the SKATS Policy Committee to consider adoption of the update to the SKATS RTSP covering the years 2019 to 2043. (Note this meeting has been moved to this location due to the closure of the MWVCOG offices on that day).

The process to update the SKATS Regional Transportation Systems Plan (RTSP) began in March 2018 and runs until the scheduled adoption at the May 28, 2019 SKATS Policy Committee meeting. The RTSP provides a guide for maintaining and improving the current transportation system and identifies priority transportation investments.

Now available on the RTSP Update page is the Public Review Draft of the document, available as a full document, and as individual chapters and appendices. The associated Air Quality Conformity Determination is also available for review and comment.

An Open House is scheduled for May 1st, from 4:00 P.M. until 7:00 P.M. in the lobby of the MWVCOG located at 100 High Street SE in Salem.

Staff will also be present at the Our Salem public meeting held on May 8th from 6:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M. at the Court Street Christian Church in Salem.
