About the Project
The Muskegon Area Transit System is investigating a new Muskegon Heights Passenger Facility!
A Siting and Conceptual Design Study is underway, which will review potential sites and design for a new passenger facility in the downtown Muskegon Heights area. The goal is to understand the community’s needs and desires, and MATS’ role in helping to achieve them. As part of the study, MATS is seeking input and information from local governments, area agencies and organizations, and importantly, the users and neighbors of MATS.
Please stay tuned to this site for more information! Two community engagement meetings will be held, and your participation is welcome and necessary for a successful project. The first, described below, is geared toward gathering a broad understanding of those needs and desires. The second, which will occur later in the project process, will reveal options and provide information about the project’s findings.
We hope life takes you here!
Community Engagement Meeting I
A community meeting was held on Wednesday, October 11 2017 to inform the consultants and the Project Management Team (PMT) about riders’ and neighbors’ preferences regarding site selection and design elements. This informal meeting included display boards as well as interactive activities, along with light refreshments and childcare. Thank you to all who attended! If you were not able to make it, you can let us know your thoughts by taking the MATS Passenger Facility Community Survey.
Later in the project process, the community will be invited to give feedback on the proposed site. Please stay tuned here for more information, or write to us via the “Contact Us” link to be added to our email update list.
As work products are created, they will appear here. Stay tuned!
