Public Asked to Provide Input on Marshfield’s Future

The City of Marshfield and the Southwest Missouri Council of Governments (SMCOG; pronounced: ‘sim-cog’) are excited to present the 2022 update of the Marshfield Transportation Plan for public input. The transportation plan has served as a continuous source of guidance for the city regarding the transportation network and investments since it was last developed in 2009. Moving forward, the Plan will serve as a guide for decision-making and policy implementation that will improve mobility for residents and visitors of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

The planning process requires public input and involvement to ensure that the final plan accurately reflects the desires of the entire community. An open house event will be held on Wednesday, June 29, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. at the Webster County Fairgrounds, 614 N. Marshall, Marshfield, MO 65706 to gain public input.

Citizens can provide comments through interactive exhibits covering the high-priority transportation needs.  The document update is based on a public survey and a series of meetings with local stakeholders, facilitated by SMCOG.

The Southwest Missouri Council of Governments (SMCOG) is a Regional Planning Commission and an association of local governments in the ten-county area of southwest Missouri. SMCOG serves Barry, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Greene, Lawrence, Polk, Stone, Taney, and Webster counties. SMCOG is one of 19 active regional planning organizations throughout Missouri.
