The Sarasota/Manatee MPO recognizes that an effective participation process is a vital element in the development and implementation of transportation plans and programs. The Sarasota/Manatee MPO Public Participation Plan (PPP) encourages the entire community to participate in the transportation planning process and encourages community leaders to support the regional transportation network.
The PPP essentially acts as a handbook that outlines the public participation methods, strategies for public engagement and outreach, and state and Federal regulations regarding public participation. In this way, the PPP guides how the MPO conducts most of its projects and interacts with the public.
