The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is updating the Florida Transportation Plan (FTP) and the Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) Plan. To kickoff this process, FDOT hosted Florida’s Transportation Visioning Summit on December 17, 2014 to engage its partners and the public in the visioning process.
To hear from even more people from around the state, five Transportation Visioning Regional Forums are scheduled for February. The dates and locations are:
- February 2, 2015 in Sebring
- February 3, 2015 in Tampa
- February 5, 2015 in Delray Beach
- February 11, 2015 in Jacksonville
- February 12, 2015 in Fort Walton Beach
Florida’s Transportation Visioning Regional Forums provide an opportunity for transportation partners and the public to provide their thoughts about the state’s transportation system of the future and to suggest bold ideas to achieve this future. Input is needed to identify and address transportation at all levels - statewide, regional, and local.
Participants are encouraged to sign up in advance via the link below for planning purposes. Walk-ins on the day of the event are welcome as well.
The FTP is a plan for all of Florida. The plan defines Florida’s future transportation vision and identifies goals, objectives, and strategies to guide long term transportation decisions. The FTP addresses how our transportation system can meet the needs of a growing population, while helping make our economy globally competitive, our communities more livable, and our environment more sustainable for future generations. It establishes the policy framework for expenditure of state and federal transportation funds flowing through the work program of the FDOT. The FTP goals and objectives also provide guidance to all other transportation partners as they develop and implement future policies, plans, and projects.
A key focus for the state is Florida’s SIS, the statewide high-priority network of transportation facilities critical to Florida’s economic competitiveness. The SIS Plan identifies policies for planning for the SIS and implementing the FTP.
