CDOT survey

Dear Editor:

In 2014, there is the prospect of a ballot measure to ask the voters to raise the state sales tax by 7/10 of a percent in order to fund statewide transportation and transit needs. If passed, a portion of this funding will also be distributed to the local counties and municipalities to assist with the local transportation system.

Concurrently, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is updating its regional and statewide transportation plans, so to better establish the transportation priorities of the different areas of the state. As part of this process, CDOT wants to hear from you. As the chair of the Southwest Transportation Planning Region, I strongly encourage you to fill out the brief online survey created by CDOT. Please go to, and in the bottom right hand corner of the website, click on “Take our Survey.” Surveys are due by Dec. 15, so do not hesitate.

Your opinion is very important to this process, as it will guide regional priorities and funding. Thank you for your time on this matter, and Merry Christmas everyone.

Bobby Lieb
