The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) will hold a 21-day public comment period on the draft amendment to the 2020-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The comment period begins September 4, 2019 and will end September 25, 2019.
NIRPC’s TIP is a short-range financial and spending plan for the utilization of federal transportation funding. These funds can be used for highway, transit, and non-motorized transportation projects. NIRPC’s TIP is periodically updated and includes projects undertaken by municipalities, counties, transit operators, and the State of Indiana. Federal planning regulations guide the preparation and development of TIP documents.
Comments may be submitted until September 25, 2019 in the following ways:
- Comment form: http://bit.ly/TIPAmendmentComment
- Phone: 219-763-6060
- United States Postal Service: NIRPC, 6100 Southport Road, Portage, IN 46368
All comments received during the 21-day public comment period will be compiled into a public comment report and responded to. This report will be made available to the public and distributed to the relevant NIRPC committees prior to any action on these items. It is anticipated that action will be taken at the October 8, 2019 meeting of the Technical Planning Committee, followed by the October 17, 2019 meeting of the NIRPC Commission Executive Board.
