Residents of Sarpy County are invited to attend one of three public meetings to share opinions on long-range transportation needs in the area.

The meetings will be hosted by the Omaha-Council Bluffs Metropolitan Area Planning Agency, or MAPA, which is working on a study to examine transit services for Sarpy County.

Information gathered at the sessions will be used to guide the 2050 Long Range Transportation Plan, the agency said in a press release. Projects must be listed in the plan to receive federal funding.

The first meeting is Feb. 29 at the La Vista Public Library, 9110 Giles Road, from 10:30 a.m. to noon.

The second meeting is March 7 at the Bellevue Public Schools Support Center building, 2820 Arboretum Drive, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The third meeting will be held in Gretna at The Beanery, 11849 S. 216th St., from 9 to 11 a.m.

Written comments can be mailed to MAPA at 2222 Cuming St. in Omaha or emailed to mapa@mapacog.org.— Emily Nitcher
