Communities in Motion

Communities in Motion

The Community Planning Association (COMPASS) is actively implementing Communities in Motion 2040 (CIM 2040), the regional long-range transportation plan for Ada and Canyon Counties, adopted in July 2014. We are also asking for public comment on the updated plan – Communities in Motion 2040 2.0.
The plan looks at four distinct transportation components – roadways, public transportation, bicycle/pedestrian infrastructure, and freight – and how they work together to provide a complete transportation system.
Communities in Motion 2040 2.0 is based on growth anticipated to the year 2040, the transportation needs to accommodate that growth, and other factors that influence, or will be influenced by, transportation, such as land use, open space, economic development, and more.
We will continue to send quarterly email updates to help you stay abreast of both the behind-the-scene planning process and opportunities for you to be involved. Each email will provide a summary of what has happened since the last email update and a preview of what is planned before the next scheduled email update. Past CIM 2040 2.0 email updates like this one are available on the CIM 2040 2.0 webpage.
