Public Involvement

How to Get Involved

The Transportation Toolkit from USDOT’s The Every Place Counts: Leadership Academy is geared toward members of the public who wish to learn how to engage in the transportation decision-making process at the local, regional, state and federal levels. The Toolkit demystifies the decision-making process.  It explains that transportation projects go through a predictable lifecycle (i.e., plan, fund, design, build and maintain). The Toolkit also defines key transportation acronyms and jargon using both text and graphics, and highlights engagement opportunities created by civil rights and public involvement regulations.

Public input is very important to the transportation planning process. All MPO meetings are open to the public and include a public comment period.
