Two different meetings to engage the public in the early stage of developing a regional long-range transportation plan concerning Greer and Harmon counties will be held Thursday, Feb. 9. The first meeting will be for residents of Harmon County at 10 a.m. at the Hollis City Hall. The second meeting is for residents of Greer County at 1 p.m. at the Greer County Chamber of Commerce in Mangum.

The meetings will introduce the long-range transportation process and provide opportunities to share your areas of concern for Greer County with the Southwest Oklahoma Regional Transportation Planning Organization (SORTPO). Transportation programs to meet the needs of the future will also be identified.

SORTPO, the regional transportation planning organization for 16 counties in southwest Oklahoma, is in the process of developing a regional long-range transportation plan. The region includes the eight counties within the Southwestern Oklahoma Development Authority (SWODA) Council of Government and the eight counties comprising the Association of South Central Oklahoma Government (ASCOG).

Please share this invitation with your associates, as all are welcome. Direct inquiries to Becky Cockrell, SWODA transportation planner, at (580) 562-4882 or becky@swoda.org
