45-Day Public Review and Comment Period is Now Open


We need your voice

Regional transportation planning is guided by laws, rules, and policies set by federal and state governments.  Both federal and state laws require public participation in the planning process. 

Engaging citizens in the transportation planning process promotes successful problem solving, brings in diverse voices and new ideas; allows for greater consideration of local and regional concerns, needs and values; and gives the public a sense of ownership of the developed solutions.

The Public Participation Plan (PPP) provides the guidelines used by the MPO to conduct and document public participation activities.  The PPP is reviewed every three years, or as needed, for possible revisions.

There is a required 45-day review and comment period which began on July 30, 2018 and will end on September 13, 2018.  The complete document is available on the MPO website and is also available at county and city administration buildings and all public libraries. The complete draft of the 2017 Public Participation Plan is available to view and download here.  Any comments made regarding the PPP will be provided at the September 24, 2018 MPO Board meeting prior to adoption.

If you have any comments or questions, please let us know by 5:00PM on Thursday, September 13, 2018 when the official 45-day comment period closes. Please email your comments to Corinne Tucker, This email address is being protected from spambots.

We encourage everyone to become involved. Your contribution ensures robust public participation in the MPO transportation planning process. Thank you for your involvement in transportation planning.
