Public Survey

The MACC is required to regularly revise its Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) and Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). The LRTP looks ahead 25+ years at the needs of the Cities of Holland and Zeeland and the Townships of Park, Holland, Zeeland, Laketown, Fillmore, Olive, and Port Sheldon. Local elected officials will make decisions about how to prioritize spending of federal dollars on roadways, non-motorized facilities (sidewalks, bicycle routes, and shared use paths), and transit (bus service). THIS SURVEY IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE INPUT INTO THAT PROCESS.

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey (about 8 minutes). Your thoughts will help us plan for the future!
