The Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln MPO has established a public comment period for the Draft 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Amendments, & Draft Air Quality Conformity Determination Report.
The Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln MPO (GCLMPO) has established a public comment period for the Draft 2018-2027 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Amendments, and Draft Air Quality Conformity Determination Report.
The N.C. Department of Transportation's transportation plan – called the State Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) – identifies the construction funding and scheduling for transportation projects at the state level over a 10-year period. NCDOT released an updated version of the Draft 2018-2027 STIP on June 28, 2017. Amendments to the Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (GCLMPO) 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) are required in order for the MTP and TIP to be consistent. The air quality conformity determination is required due to the Clean Air Act’s requirement that an MPO’s plans and programs conform to the purpose of the state implementation plan (SIP) for achieving air quality standards.
Copies of all documents and maps for the plans referenced above are available for review during the dates listed above in the Gastonia Planning Department located on the 2nd floor of the Garland Center - 150 South York Street, Gastonia, NC 28052, and the following city/town halls/administration buildings: Belmont, Bessemer City, Boiling Springs, Cherryville, Cleveland County, Cramerton, Dallas, Gaston County, Gastonia, Lincoln County, Kings Mountain, Lincolnton, Lowell, Mount Holly, Ranlo, Shelby, and Stanley.
