Notice is hereby given of the Availability of the following Draft documents/materials for public review and comment:

October 2017 Amendment #1 and Amendment #2 to the Merrimack Valley

Metropolitan Planning Organization Federal Fiscal Years (FFYs) 2018-2022

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)

The TIP is a federally-mandated document that programs federal transportation construction funding in the region. The TIP provides a brief description of each road or transit project along with estimates of cost and the year that it will likely be advertised for construction. Any transportation project that will use federal transportation funds must be in the TIP. In addition, the MVMPO’s Public Participation Plan satisfies the Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority’s public participation process for the development of its Program of Projects.
Copies of the above referenced documents are available for review at the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission (MVPC) office at 160 Main Street in Haverhill and at local libraries for the twenty-one (21) day review period beginning on November 7, 2017 and ending on November 27, 2017. The documents are also available on the MVPC website at www.mvpc.org.
The MVMPO staff will accept mailed or emailed written comments on the Draft documents through November 27, 2017. If submitted by regular mail, public comments must be addressed to:
