COVID-19 Update

Home > Calendar > News > COVID-19 Update

Dear Members, Project Partners, and Friends:

At MAPA, we want to reassure you that while we are not in the office in order to help “flatten the curve” on COVID-19 and protect ourselves, our families, all of you, and the public, we are working remotely to provide you the best service possible.

We have taken some precautionary steps to help us assist you while remaining safe.

Meetings and events

Due to the quickly changing situation with COVID-19, some of MAPA’s monthly meetings in April are canceled while others will take place in a virtual environment when feasible.

Links to join MAPA’s meetings via video conference will be posted on the MAPA website along with phone numbers for a call-in option. 

Links for project meetings will be emailed by the individual staff member responsible for the communication surrounding that particular project.

When hosting a virtual meeting is neither feasible nor appropriate, meetings will be canceled.

Anyone with questions about the status of an upcoming MAPA-related meeting, training or event, should reach out directly to the staff member in charge.

Cancellations and Virtual Meetings   

  • Heartland 2050 Regional Planning Advisory Committee (RPAC) on April 3 is canceled
  • Regional Planning Affiliation (RPA)-18 Policy & Technical Committee meeting on April 8 at 11:00 a.m. will be a virtual meeting

We know this is a situation filled with uncertainty, confusion, and anxiety because we feel it too.

We continue to do our work behind the scenes that you entrust to us in transportation planning and community and economic development to help our communities connect, plan, and thrive. 

We are anxious for the day we can meet again in person. Until then, we will reach out by email, by phone or even video conference to keep you informed about the progress on our projects. 

We are united with you as we navigate this uncharted territory together.  

Take care and stay safe.
