As a citizen of Boone County, we want to know what YOU think are the problem areas and potential transportation improvements that will enrich YOUR community! So, in addition to sharing your input through this website and survey, we invite you to join us at one or both of the public events we have coming up in August:

Public Open House

Tuesday, August 29, 2017
4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Boone County Public Library (Main/Burlington Branch)
1786 Burlington Pike, Burlington, KY 41005

We’re going “old school” with this event using an open house style where residents can come any time between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and provide their input. The event will include a series of stations – each focusing on a different part of Boone County to facilitate discussion and sharing of information.  Staff will be on hand to talk one-on-one and gather input from those who know Boone County best – residents, business owners, employees and others interested improving travel in, out and around the County.

Facebook Live Town Hall

Hosted by Boone County Fiscal Court Judge/Executive Gary Moore and Representative Sal Santoro, House District 60
Thursday, August 31, 2017
Noon to approximately 12:30pm

We’re excited to hold this live, online event to hear transportation issues, suggestions and questions directly from YOU – Boone County! Judge/Executive Gary Moore will provide an overview of the Boone County Transportation Plan. Then, Judge Moore and Representative Sal Santoro will discuss some of the current transportation improvement projects that are already underway across the County. Questions will be taken from the FB Live audience via comment posts. Any question not answered will be responded to by staff following the event’s conclusion. This event will be recorded and posted on www.BooneKY.oki.org.
