Amendment for JATSO Unified Planning Work Program for Fiscal Year 2019

The Joplin Area Transportation Study Organization (JATSO) is seeking a 7-day public comment period for an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2019 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). This amendment involves continuing a task from FY 2018 that still needs to be completed. The amendment also involves adding “Task 8: Update the Pedestrian Transportation System Component of ADA Transition Plans for the Cities of Joplin, Webb City, and Carl Junction”. Lastly, each total budget for Tasks 1 through 5 has been modified to reflect the same cost as the FY18 UPWP. The public comment period begins at 8 a.m., January 11 and ends at 5 p.m., January 18.

Comments for any portion of the UPWP Amendment may be submitted for consideration. JATSO is the transportation planning agency for the Joplin metropolitan area, as designated by the federal government, and its goal is to provide for regional mobility.  The UPWP is a document that designates federal funds for JATSO Planning activities in the upcoming fiscal year.

All comments must be received by 5:00 P.M., January 18, 2019.  Comments may be submitted to: Edward Whitmore, Joplin City Hall, 602 S.
