Public participation is integral to good transportation policies, programs and projects. Without meaningful public involvement, there is a risk of making poor decisions or decisions that have unintended negative consequences. More than an agency requirement and more than a means of fulfilling a statutory obligation, meaningful public participation is central to good decision-making. The MPO is responsible for actively involving all affected parties in an open, cooperative and collaborative process that provides meaningful opportunities to influence transportation decisions.
The Public Participation Plan (PPP) describes the MPO’s strategies and techniques to inform and engage the public in transportation planning issues with the purpose of maximizing participation and effectiveness. The effectiveness of the MPO’s public participation plan is evaluated every other year and documented in the Measures of Effectiveness Report (MOE). The MPO produces a new or updated PPP every four years at the outset of each update of the long range transportation plan.
