I urge the MPO to consider the preservation of rural communities. Not everyone wants hike/bike trail along the roads they use on a daily basis. Some of us live in rural communities SPECIFICALLY to be away from these types of services. I urge the MPO to consider this and preserve the rural portions of the newly adopted counties.
Please continue to make the urbanized areas as transportation friendly as possible and encourage people to move to downtown areas as the biggest measure to preserve rural/non subdivided land.
Additionally, your public input meetings should be advertised better - I am a rural Guadalupe County resident and had NO idea these meetings were even going on until after they had passed. There are multiple FB groups that this information could've been posted and promoted through if someone at the MPO responsible for the outreach actually put a little effort into the promotion.
