Public Participation Plan


Schedule: Every three years a review of the PPP shall be conducted and updated, as necessary.

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’s Public Participation Plan (PPP) encourages the entire community to participate in developing feasible alternatives and encourages community leaders to support the regional transportation network. The process also increases public awareness of transportation services and programs.

The PPP essentially acts as a handbook that outlines the Sarasota/Manatee MPO’s 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. For more information on Sarasota/Manatee MPO meetings, events, and public outreach activities, please visit our Calendar page.
