Residents asked to complete transportation survey


The Maumee Valley Planning Organization (MVPO) is currently working with Fulton County to begin development of a Locally Developed Coordinated Transportation Plan. The purpose of this plan is to identify community resources for transportation, understand the gaps and unmet needs within those resources, and to determine the approach to addressing needs.

Coordination of health and human services and public transit has been demonstrated to reduce costs and increase access to services for older adults, people with disabilities and other transportation disadvantaged populations. Additionally, the coordinated plan is a requirement for Specialized Transportation funding through the Ohio Department of Transportation.

In order to gather information for the plan, MVPO is asking Fulton County residents to complete the Fulton County Transportation Needs Survey, available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/FulCoSurvey. The purpose of this survey is to understand how Fulton County residents feel about transportation in the County.

Paper copies can be requested by contacting Maumee Valley Planning Organization at 419-784-3882 or mvpo@mvpo.org. The survey will be open now until Friday, Nov. 3, 2017.
