Help Implement the Region's Plan 

The collective actions of 8.5 million residents can have a dramatic effect on the way our region functions. That's why it is critical that we work together to make our region a better place to live, work, and play. Small changes, like taking public transportation, walking, biking, or replacing and updating fixtures can help us reduce our consumption of water and energy. Get familiar with the GO TO 2040 comprehensive regional plan -- help us make sure local leaders, residents, and elected officials know we have a coordinated plan to  make our communities more livable. 

CMAP committees. CMAP has a number of committees that meet regularly to discuss issues related to GO TO 2040. Meetings are open to the public and meeting agendas are posted online a week in advance.

CMAP Weekly Update. To keep up to date on all CMAP and our partners are doing to implement GO TO 2040, sign up for the CMAP Weekly Update.

Public participation plan. CMAP is required to have a public participation plan (PPP) that details how CMAP engages with the public on on planning initiatives.

Congestion pricing campaign. Learn more about the regional effort to implement congestion pricing, with express toll lanes that will help manage traffic and give drivers better choices for getting around.

Performance-based funding. Transparent evaluation criteria based on "performance-based funding" can improve transportation decision making, as described in a CMAP microsite and detailed analysis.
