Regional Transportation Plan (2016)
The Northwest Hills Council of Governments developed a new Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) to guide future transportation decisions in the 21 town region. The RTP recommends a list of projects and priorities for travel improvements throughout the region. It considers all means of travel including automobile, transit, walking and bicycle. In addition to input from municipalities in the region, the vision and priorities were shaped by a program of stakeholder input, such as several public forums and an online survey. Information reflects the unique conditions of the Northwest Hills Region.
Regional Transportation Safety Plan (2018)
In 2017 the Connecticut Department of Transportation published the Connecticut Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) to guide the State in reducing fatalities and serious injuries along CT roadways. The Northwest Hills Regional Transportation Safety Plan in congruence with the SHSP, serves as a road map and strategy to help the region and all twenty-one municipalities collaborate with the State to reach the same objective of reducing fatalities and injuries, increasing safety awareness and allowing the Towns and region to focus on their unique safety issues.
