County will seek
input on roads plan
As part of ongoing development of a roads master plan,
the Platte County Commission has announced it will hold
a public meeting to gather citizen input. The meeting
will be held Monday, March 11, at the Platte County Administration
Building (415 Third Street, Platte City, Mo) and is scheduled
to begin at 7 p.m.
Several issues will be discussed at the meeting that
related to roads and bridges within Platte County. First,
staff will discuss the results of a citizen survey regarding
road issues that was conducted in November.
Also, on the agenda for the session is a review of some
of the road usage data that has been collected so far
by HNTB, the consulting firm hired by the county to assist
with the plan. Finally, citizens will be given the opportunity
to share any ideas they have for improving roads and bridges
in Platte County.
2nd District Commissioner Steve Wegner said the county
understands that there are roads and bridges that need
"The purpose of this meeting and of the plan as a
whole is to identify potential solutions," said Wegner.
"Input from residents is essential if the plan is
going to be successful."
The county has been working on a roads master plan since
last year. In addition to hiring HNTB to assist with the
plan, the county commission also appointed approximately
25 residents to serve on a citizen oversight committee.
That committee has met several times to discuss issues
related to roads and bridges to the county.
