In February 2011, the Minnesota Department of Transportation launched Minnesota GO a visioning process to better align the transportation system with what Minnesotans expect for their quality of life, economy, and natural environment. Through Minnesota GO, MnDOT, the Citizens League and the University of Minnesota will engage Minnesotans from all walks of life in both online and in-person activities to help craft a transportation vision for generations. This collective vision will help MnDOT and the other partners set priorities and goals, as well as inform a statewide multimodal transportation plan by early 2012.

Please join WTS Minnesota and the University of Minnesota’s Interdisciplinary Transportation Student Organization (ITSO) for our October joint program. MnDOT’s Philip Schaffner, Project Manager for Minnesota Go, will provide information covering the range of methods used to engage the public in the visioning process, the outcomes of the effort and how the vision will shape the future transportation efforts. As always, this program is open to all, and to celebrate the new school year, it is FREE for students!

Philip Schaffner is a Principal Planner with Mn/DOT’s Office of Statewide Multimodal Planning and the Project Manager for Minnesota GO. He has nine years of experience in both the public and nonprofit sectors most recently with the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center. He holds a BA from Grinnell College and a Masters in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
