The Bannock Transportation Planning Organization (BTPO) is a non-profit association created by local governments and serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Portneuf Valley. One of the primary functions of an MPO is to develop a long-range transportation plan for its planning area. Metropolitan Transportation Plan 2040 (MTP 2040) is being developed to map out the Portneuf Valley’s future.
Over the past year, BTPO has explored four possible transportation and land use scenarios with the community. These included:
Trend Scenario: Assumed existing housing and employment development patterns would continue to 2040.
University Life - Active Living Scenario: Emphasized a thriving academic hub, as well as healthy and active neighborhoods.
Outdoor Life Scenario: Encouraged access to public lands and conservation of land resources
Great Place for Business Scenario: Development and transportation strategies to support new and existing businesses.
The most promising elements and strategies have now been combined into a single “Preferred Scenario”. The preferred scenario represents a future vision for the Portneuf Valley region, and includes goals and objectives that will help to guide transportation investments over the next 25 years.
Explore the Preferred Scenario, and let us know what you think! Portneuf Valley’s future depends on you.
