MoDOT Hosts Open House Meetings to Discuss State Transportation Sales Tax Vote

PRESS RELEASE

 

After years of work by local planning agencies and transportation partners, Missourians are now asked to weigh in on a list of transportation projects and improvements that could improve safety, create jobs, and boost Missouri's economy.

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) has coordinated three open house meetings in the Southeast District to ask residents to look at the local priorities and share their thoughts and insights.

On Aug. 5, Missouri voters will decide on Constitutional Amendment 7, a ballot measure to temporarily raise Missouri's sales tax by ¾ of a cent. All proceeds from the tax would go toward needed transportation improvements across the state. The amendment's provisions include the creation of a project list prior to the election so Missourians can see what their tax dollars would fund.

The public is invited to attend the meetings at any time from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to speak to regional planning partners and MoDOT representatives. No formal presentations will be made. The public meetings are scheduled as follows:

• Thursday, June 12 - Cape Girardeau Osage Community Center, 1625 North Kingshighway, Cape Girardeau, Mo.

• Tuesday, June 17 - Poplar Bluff Chamber of Commerce, 111W. Pine Street, Poplar Bluff, Mo.

• Thursday, June 19 - Farmington Regional Chamber of Commerce, 302 N. Washington, Farmington, Mo.

There are multiple open house meetings scheduled in each region of the state. The entire public meeting schedule, the draft transportation improvement list, and an online comment form are available at noon on June 13 at www.modot.org/movingforward.
