Everybody knows CAMPO as the sexiest metropolitan planning organization.  And, it wants to talk with you… to learn about you… to discover what you want.  What are your hopes?  Dreams?

You’ve been dreaming about $836,000,000 in project applications, but CAMPO only has $132,000,000 of federal and state funds to spend on you.

How to decide!?

You call your best friends, looking to them for support because you can’t have everything.  They help you by completing this survey.  They join you for cocktails when CAMPO hosts a community meeting Sept. 21 at One Texas Center, 505 Barton Springs Road, from 6:30–8 p.m., to discuss the various projects, and a public hearing Sept. 26 at Joe C. Thompson Center on The University of Texas campus at 6 p.m.

You’re so predictable: you’re attracted to simple projects that you can grow with.

1) Construction of a Sabine Street promenade that will involve the development of sidewalks, bike lanes and pedestrian amenities between Fourth and Seventh streets ($3.4 million).

2) First phase of bike share system ($2.0 million).

**SRSLY, this is important!  Complete the survey and make sure to indicate you wish to support the above two projects, amongst others.

  1. Holy cow, both of these projects were just funded by CAMPO!

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to complete the survey. Your input had a direct impact on these projects getting their money.

    Special thanks to the local businesses like Mellow Johnny’s and GSD&M for organizing the requisite 25% matching funds for the bike share project.
