PLANNING FOR TRANSPORTATION 11-20-13 LMS
The November 14 meeting of a Multi-jurisdictional Transportation Planning Group was a great success according to City Grants/Community Development Project Coordinator Mary Cerise.
She told the November 20 meeting of the Salmon City Council both the city and the county were well represented at an organizational meeting aimed at identifying priorities related to the area’s present and future transportation needs.
Attendance at the first meeting lived up to the name ‘multi-jurisdictional’ with representatives from local law enforcement, School District 291, Steele Memorial Hospital, County Commissioners, City Council members, City Public Works Superintendent Harry Shanafelt, Mayor Leo Marshall, Lemhi County Economic Development Executive Director Tammy Stringham and County Building Inspector Gary Goodman.
The city is embarking on an update of its Transportation Plan and Cerise said the input received was excellent. “As we move forward into piecing together this updated Transportation Plan all this feedback is going to really play into what that updated Transportation Plan is actually going to look like.”
Some of the discussion topics were; a marked snow route with signage, VanDreff reconstruction between Daisy and Church Streets, the degree of grade on the Elks Road where it meets Highway 93 North and cataloging rights of way on present streets. Cerise will compile all the transportation subjects discussed. She said she was very pleased with the attendance at the first meeting. “I feel like it’s great that we’re moving forward with our community partners as we look into making changes in the Transportation Plan.”
