Vision and Goals

This 10-question survey is designed to gather public input for the 2020 update of the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP).  The LRTP is a fiscally constrained planning document that establishes spending priorities by identifying and prioritizing the region's transportation needs with input from transportation stakeholders and the community.  Projects and programs that may be federal aid eligible must first be documented in this plan prior to receipt of federal transportation funding.  The planning process is overseen by the Nantucket Planning and Economic Development Commission (NP&EDC) - a multi-agency committee of local officials established to plan for the orderly and coordinated development and protection of the physical, social and economic resources of the Island of Nantucket.

Question Title

* 1. The draft Vision for NP&EDC's 2020 LRTP is "Equitably and legally limit vehicles on Nantucket while providing a transportation system that is safe, economical, accessible for all users, and sensitive to the character of the Island."

The mechanisms for the goals that implement this vision are: 
  • Vehicle Restrictions 
  • Town and Country Pattern of Development
  • Multi-Modal Transportation Options
  • Parking Management
  • Wayfinding
  • Resiliency and Reliability
  • Transport between Nantucket and the Mainland
  • Congestion and Safety Balance
  • Environmental and Historical Sensitivity
Please provide any suggested additions or revisions to this Vision Statement or Goal themes in the comment box.
