Public Participation Plan
Ever wonder how decisions are made about transportation projects that affect your life? Citizen input helps transportation planners understand our community’s needs so they can work out the best ways to get you to your destination. How could you be more involved?
Our goal is to have significant and ongoing public participation in the transportation-planning process. Education and outreach are an essential part of informing the public about how these decisions are made at the metropolitan level, and MARC seeks to improve opportunities for citizens to voice their ideas and values about transportation.
Updating the plan
MARC's Public Participation Plan (last updated in December 2010) serves as a guide to improve the process for involving citizens in transportation decision making. The plan includes information on holding public meetings at convenient and accessible locations and times, using visualization techniques to better describe the impacts of plans, and making public information available in electronically accessible formats.
Ways to get involved
How do citizens fit into the transportation planning process? One, you may know information that is more current or detailed than is available to transportation professionals. And two, you may see things differently. That is why it's important for you to be involved. There are many ways to make planners aware of your needs and concerns and also help develop solutions to problems. To follow the developments in transportation planning for the region, you can:
