The Public Participation Plan outlines the SETRPC-MPO procedures to support citizen participation during the transportation planning process.
Federal legislation, such as the Safe Accountable Flexible Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), the Clean Air Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act, have not only placed new demands on local governments, but have also called for new methods to engage the general public, public agencies, and special interest groups in the regional transportation planning process.
Public involvement fosters an opportunity for better planning decisions and collective acceptance of transportation plans and programs. The SETRPC-MPO utilizes a variety of methods to encourage public participation and promote involvement in the continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative transportation planning process.
