Summary

The Hagerstown/Eastern Panhandle Metropolitan Planning Organization (HEPMPO) is required to update its Long Range Mulitmodal Transportation Plan at least every four years. The MPO retained Michael Baker to help update that plan, who in turn suggested MetroQuest be included on the project team.

As the MPO’s stated mission is to ‘provide a cooperative form for regional collaboration, planning and public decision-making,’ they chose to utilize MetroQuest to further increase access to the process, in particular for individuals that would not otherwise have an opportunity to participate. MetroQuest was used to collect public feedback on priority infrastructure project and multi-modal transportation needs.
