Matthews and Stallings are asking for help in creating a Comprehensive Transportation Plan.
A public meeting regarding the plan is scheduled for 4-7 p.m. Tuesday at Central Piedmont Community College, 2800 Campus Ridge Road, Matthews, Building No. 1, Room 2215.
Residents of both towns are encouraged to get involved and let town leaders know how the roadways currently are performing and what can be done to make travel easier.
The towns share many transportation woes and have decided those can best be addressed by working together.
Each town is pitching in $25,000 that will be matched by a $50,000 federal grant to create the plan.
The plan will:
Identify existing traffic patterns and transportation network deficiencies.
Identify bicycling, pedestrian and transit alternatives to private automobiles.
Identify short-term and long-term improvements for roadways and intersections.
Suggest policies, funding sources and an action plan to help find resources to implement the key recommendations.
A draft plan is tentatively scheduled to be released in November.
