Want to know the findings of the U.S. 60 Corridor Study for southern Webster County?
Specifically, want to know about the stretch of four-lane highway that goes through Seymour?
If so, mark next Tuesday on your calendar.
The site is the Seymour Senior Citizens’ Center on the west side of the city square.
And the time is 6 p.m.
Everyone is invited, officials said.
At Tuesday’s meeting, a Springfield consulting firm hired by the Webster County Commission will present its plan for what the future of U.S. 60 in southern Webster County holds, should its recommendations be implemented.
Ideas for those recommendations came after two previous public meetings in Seymour; the first one was held at Seymour City Hall, while the second was at the senior center.
Previous meetings like the one set in Seymour have been held in Diggins, Fordland and Rogersville.
At a “stakeholders” meeting last month in Seymour, the consultants said the highest need for highway improvements is in Seymour.
“It’s very vital, I feel, that the people of Seymour turn out for (Tuesday’s) meeting at the senior center,” Presiding Commissioner Paul Ipock, R-Diggins, said last week. “All of the information presented is vital to the community, and I feel that people will be pleased with what they hear.” Ipock emphasized that the public is invited and urged to attend.
“For as long I can remember, the businesses and residents of Seymour have said the highway situation wasn’t good and needed a remedy,” he said.
“At Tuesday’s meeting, a lot of solutions will be laid out. And I think people will like those solutions, which I feel have a realistic chance of occurring in the future because of the vital need.
