Polk County, the towns of Columbus, Saluda, and Tryon, the Isothermal Rural Planning Organization (IRPO), and the North Carolina Department of Transportation – Transportation Planning Division (NCDOT TPD) are working together to develop a Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) that includes Polk County. This Plan will identify transportation needs and long-term solutions for the next 25 to 30 years, including highway, aviation, bike/ped, rail, and public transportation.
The public is encouraged to provide feedback for the CTP by completing the survey that is being mailed to all Polk County households (as determined by tax records). Prepaid return envelopes are also included with the mailed surveys. If you do not receive a survey and would like to participate, a digital survey is also available beginning November 25, 2019, at polksurvey.metroquest.com. In addition, a Spanish survey can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
