  • A new website with a survey for the public to comment on regional transportation priorities has been activated.
    The Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments — with representatives from Camden, Laclede, Miller and Morgan counties — is working closely with the Missouri Department of Transportation to help establish a regional prioritization list of potential projects.
    Some of the potential projects could become part of a statewide ballot measure asking Missouri voters to approve a transportation sales tax to supplement declining motor fuel tax revenues.
    Developing these regional lists will help MoDOT plan for the future and have an established process for prioritization.
    Transportation is more than just roads and bridges, and that is why it is important to engage all modes of transportation in this planning process, according to a press release from the LOCLG publicizing the website.
    "It is vital during this prioritization process to get as much participation and feedback from citizens within the LOCLG region. We encourage you to take part in a values survey that will inform how we prioritize proposed transportation projects," the press release stated. "This process must be inclusive, transparent, and accountable. In order to abide by this process we are asking each of you to take a few short minutes out of your day to take this survey."
    Go to http://www.motransportationpriorities.com/loclg and click on the tab that says “Take the Values Survey”. There is also a tab available where the public can suggest project ideas.
    To see about getting a hard copy of the survey, contact the county commission office at the courthouse for your county.
    A public hearing on regional transportation priorities is also scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday, April 24 at the Camden County Courthouse.
