    Amarillo Metropolitan Planning Organization Policy Committee Workshop to Address Key Transportation Projects

    The Amarillo Metropolitan Planning Organization Policy Committee will hold a workshop on September 14th to discuss important transportation initiatives. The workshop will cover various topics, including the Ports to Plains Corridor, the draft FY24 MPO Project Priority List, and updates on Category 7 and Category 9 funding. The meeting will be open to the public, allowing individuals to provide comments and contribute to the discussion. The workshop will take place in room 275 of the Simms Building in Amarillo.

    One of the major projects that will be highlighted during the workshop is the construction of a new barn at Boys Ranch, which will enhance the Future Farmers of America (FFA) program. The new state-of-the-art barn will provide ample space for students to engage in activities such as agricultural mechanics, leatherworking, and livestock projects. The construction is set to begin in mid-September and is expected to be completed by April 2024.

    The Amarillo Habitat for Humanity also has important news to share. The organization will be accepting applications for the Habitat Homeowner Program during specific dates and times. Interested individuals can attend application classes on various dates throughout September and obtain the necessary forms. The deadlines for submitting completed applications are mentioned in the article.

    Lastly, the Wings of Hope Memorial Celebration, hosted by the Hope & Healing Place, is an event dedicated to remembering loved ones and offering support to grieving families. The butterfly release ceremony, which symbolizes the journey through grief, will be held at Amarillo College’s Memorial Park. Participants can reserve butterflies in memory of their loved ones and take part in activities such as a memorial chalk walk and butterfly crafts.
