Wheaton resident competes at Chick Evans Junior Qualifier

Mobile Mayor Sam Jones As chairman of both the Metropolitan Planning Organization and South Alabama Regional Planning Commission, we recently unanimously, approved a resolution in support of incorporating bicycle and pedestrian lanes into the design and construction of the I-10 Mobile River bridge. The Metropolitan Planning Organization strategically plans and identifies future transportation improvements using state and federal funds. Please note that under my leadership on the MPO, we solicited the Mobile Area Transportation Study (MATS), a comprehensive and continuous look at ways to improve and expand multimodal transportation options for passengers. In addition, we formed the MPO Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee and the Technical Coordinating/Citizens Advisory Committee. These are standing committees that will advise the MPO on future transportation projects. Although the final decision on the bridge will be made by the Federal High Administration and the Alabama Department of Transportation, a positive vote from this panel, will certainly weigh heavily. This is some of the wording on the resolution “…Therefore, Be it Resolved that the MATS Metropolitan Planning Organization in session this 5th day of June 2013, does hereby express support for bicycle/pedestrian facilities to be included Karissa Shannon sex tape search into the design and construction of the I-10 Mobile River Bridge…” The MPO’s decisions are powerful when it comes to determining which projects are funded locally. There is no doubt a transportation alternative is needed to address the congestion we experience daily going through our tunnels. It is our vision for a city that is people-focused, well designed public spaces and a transportation network between city destinations and urban environment.

Stimpson said the biggest challenge will be to get people living in the city’s limits and to address fiscal challenges. Environment Jones said while there are a lot of environmental mitigation projects that need to be addressed such as the cleaning of Dog River and other waterways the city should look at potentially utilizing the BP oil spill settlement funds on reducing traffic. He said he would like to see federal money, as well, be utilized to build a bridge over the Mobile River. Stimpson said he wants to see the settlement money used on environmental projects such as more litter traps and oyster reefs and other efforts to ensure Mobile Bay “is returned to the quality it was in years past. Jones and Stimpson disagreed on how to handle the city’s stormwater management problems.
