Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization TIP Amendment Now Open For Public Comment
 
The Dover/Kent County MPO is proposing to amend the FY20-22 TIP to include solar panels on canopies over the bus parking lot at the Dover Operations and Administration Facility. DTC received a $2.5 million discretionary grant from FTA specifically for this purpose. The total cost will be $3.1 million to be spent in FY21-22.
 
The draft of the amended TIP is now published on the MPO’s website (www.doverkentmpo.org) and is open for public comment until January 6, 2021 when it will be voted on by the MPO Council for adoption.
 
 
Any comments or concerns that people have can be sent to Helen Wiles, Public Outreach Manager for the MPO. Ms Wiles can be reached by phone at 302-387-6026 or email at helen.wiles@doverkentmpo.org.
 
The public participation process for the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) will also meet the public participation requirements for DTC’s Program of Projects (POP). The TIP also considers effects upon low income and minority residents.
 
The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization is a federally funded not-for-profit that works with local, state and federal governments along with local transportation organizations to ensure that transportation planning and projects are done in compliance with Federal mandates to include the Federal Clean Air Act and the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST).
