What is Public Involvement? Public involvement is the process of involving the public in the early stages of the transportation planning process through completion. Public involvement is a critical component in the transportation planning process. Through meaningful consideration and input from interested citizens, needs from all modes of the public transportation system become a shared mission with technical planning staff and policy makers. For the transportation community, involving the public in planning and project development poses a major challenge. The Montgomery MPO’s transportation public involvement goals, policies, and procedures are described in the Public Involvement Plan or P.I.P.
The goals of the Montgomery MPO public involvement process include:
- Raise the level of understanding of the transportation planning process in the MPO transportation study area and identify how interested citizens can become involved.
- Provide the public with opportunities for involvement in the transportation planning process.
- Identify and involve traditionally underserved communities (those communities with high concentrations of minority, low-income, or elderly populations) in the transportation planning process.
- The Montgomery MPO’s public involvement goals, policies, and procedures are described in the Public Involvement Plan or P.I.P
