The Rochester-Olmsted Council of Governments (ROCOG) is soliciting public input on the draft chapters in the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) 2045. ROCOG has approved a 30-day public comment period ending at noon on September 23, 2020. 

Public comments/suggestions are welcome during the ROCOG public hearing:

  • Date: Wednesday, August 19, 2020
  • Time: Noon 
  • Location: 2122 Campus Drive SE, Conference Room A, Rochester, MN – accessible to the public via Skype in response to the physical distancing requirements of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Join online meeting

As the Metropolitan Planning Organization for the Rochester area, ROCOG is required by federal law to produce a long-range plan and update it every five years. The LRTP envisions transportation improvements in Rochester and throughout Olmsted County for the next 25 years. The LRTP addresses three modes of transportation: streets and highways; active transportation (bicycles and pedestrians); and mass transit.

The draft LRTP and a StoryMap summary of the draft are available on the ROCOG web site:  

These materials are also located at the Olmsted County Planning Department, 2122 Campus Drive SE, Suite 100, Rochester, MN 55904. Please contact Bryan Law as our building is currently closed to the public due to response to the physical distancing requirements of the COVID-19 pandemic.
