Lima-Allen County Regional Planning Commission held their first of two meetings for a long-range plan.

The planning commission presented research that they have compiled that will go into a long-term plan for transportation projects up through 2040. Plan details where federal and state funds will be and the plan for committed and recommended projects. Factors that were examined were population, land use, travel, and employment. A constraint on the plan is what projects will be prioritized. Projects are planned through 2021 but are open after that.

"It takes years for a transportation project to go from the perspective of just an idea in somebody's head, unto you're actually walking or driving on it," said Thomas Mazur, executive director of the planning commission. "I think that's the advantage of keeping those open communications back and forth between all of the different players."

The second and last meeting will be Friday at the Lima Public Library at 3 pm. or all information can be found at www.lacrpc.com.
