Tackling Traverse City's Traffic Future

Tackling Traverse City's Traffic Future

By Lynn Geiger

It’s one thing to complain about traffic today. It’s another to have a vision for the region’s transportation demands decades down the road.

Lee Bowen says the time to move that vision forward is now. The Traverse City Area Transportation and Land Use Study (TC-TALUS) board, of which Bowen is chair, will consider adoption of Vision 2035 – a 129-page plan that outlines transportation priorities over the next 20 years – at its meeting tomorrow. The board is comprised of some 20 agencies (from TCAPS to Cherry Capital Airport to Garfield Township) and two citizens-at-large.

“This is big thinking, long-range, where do we want to go,” says Bowen. “Let’s face it, the region has been discovered, we’re growing, people are coming … we have to manage it.” more
