Resources to Help You Get Involved
Here are some resources that you can refer to or use as guidelines if you'd like to get involved in the transportation planning process.
The MPO's Public Involvement Plan (PIP) indicates opportunities for all segments of the public to be involved in the metropolitan transportation planning process. Groups include the general public, representatives of transportation services, community representatives, and many others.
Do you have a transportation idea, problem or challenge? Do you want to participate in the process of making decisions about transportation plans and projects? Do you currently have little to no experience with these types of decisions? Then the Toolkit is for you!
The purpose of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is to prohibit programs that receive federal funds from discriminating against participants or clients on the basis of race, color or national origin. The MPO's Title VI Complaint Procedures were developed as a guideline to be followed should a Title VI complaint be filed with the MPO.
