West Allis town hall meeting set for Tuesday, May 20 – Kenosha on Wednesday, May 21 

A statewide public outreach effort to collect citizen input on Wisconsin’s transportation needs and challenges will come to West Allis on Tuesday, May 20 and Kenosha on Wednesday, May 21. This will be the last of nine planned public town hall meetings hosted by Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Secretary Mark Gottlieb as part of the department’s “Transportation Moves Wisconsin” initiative.

“The goal of this initiative is to give more visibility to the state’s multimodal transportation system and to engage people around the state in talking about how it impacts their lives,” Secretary Gottlieb said. “The feedback we receive will be important in the development of the next state transportation budget.”

 

Both meetings provide an open house starting at 5 p.m. with Secretary Gottlieb’s presentation at 5:30 p.m., followed by public discussion:

  • Tuesday, May 20, West Allis
    MATC West Allis Campus, Room 117
    1200 S. 71st. Street, West Allis, WI
    (parking available in campus lots)
  • Wednesday, May 21, Kenosha
    Gateway Technical College, Madrigrano Auditorium
    3520 30th Avenue, Kenosha, WI
    (parking available near Madrigrano Auditorium – watch for signs)

Staff with WisDOT’s Southeast Region will be available at both meetings to answer questions about area transportation projects, but the meeting is focused on broader issues and the need to identify new revenue to make infrastructure investments in all modes of transportation. Along with attending a town hall meeting, people can also submit comments to the department via the web.
