Tonight the Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation is hosting a
public meeting with the Missouri Transportation Alliance. This is the
private group putting together the next initiative petition for future
MoDOT funding. Most recently they led the successful Amendment 3
Most of the group are the usual suspects of people who want new and
bigger highways, so it is very important that they hear from
Missourians who want some of MoDOT's funding spent on transit,
walking, bicycling, etc. To date, tonight is the only meeting that
MTA is holding in Kansas City.
Having a voice in the future of MoDOT funding is especially critical
given recent news that MoDOT used taxpayers' money to lobby against a
Complete Streets bill that would have made them take alternative
transportation more seriously.
