Policy Hacking with Farm&City: The UTP and You

The UTP and YOU

Please plan to join us for Policy Hacking with Farm&City Thursday, July 7th at 4pm Central / 3pm Mountain

The UTP and YOU

with Casey Wells from TxDOT’s Statewide Planning Team

This will be a hybrid event that is free and open to the public. You are welcome to join us virtually, or in person at Capital Factory in downtown Austin

Every summer the Texas Transportation Commission presents a proposed ten year plan that isn’t quite a budget, but is seen as the process for allocating billions across the state. This list of projects and funding priorities is part of the Commission’s 10 year plan known as the Unified Transportation Program, also known as the “UTP.” Over the next month, Texans are invited to make their voices heard in this process, to ask for the transportation system you want.

If this seems like a lot to take in, that’s because it is. So to help explain it all, we have asked Casey Wells from TxDOT’s Statewide Planning Team to join us for our July Policy Hacking with Farm&City to talk about the UTP, as well as related plans such as the Department’s Resilience, Climate, Carbon Reduction, and Statewide Long-Range Transportation plans, all starting this summer. 

There will be opportunities for those who join us in person, and virtually, to ask questions about the UTP and TxDOT’s approach to planning. We hope this can be a fun and informative event, and that we can work together for a transportation system that meets the diverse – and growing – needs of Texans.

Or join us in-person, at the Capital Factory in downtown Austin.
Capital Factory is located in the Austin Centre building at 7th and Brazos in the middle of downtown Austin, Texas.
