Metra has embarked on a process to develop a new strategic plan, which will guide the agency for years to come. One of the key first steps in that process is to cement into place their mission, values and vision to use to prioritize spending decisions.
Therefore, they are asking key stakeholders-our board, our employees, our riders, the public, and you-for their input. In this initial phase, they want to hear your thoughts about the following questions: What should Metra's mission be? What should our vision for the future be? What projects should Metra focus our energies and resources on?
Riders and the public can offer their input in two ways. First, they can complete a short survey at www.metrarail.com/strategicplan. This survey will be active until August 10, 1012.
Second, Metra soon will be holding the first round of open houses throughout the Chicago region, where riders and the public will be able to get more information about this process and offer their thoughts. An open house will be held in the Village of New Lenox at the Village Hall, 1 Veterans Parkway on Tuesday July 24th, 4pm-7pm.
