LWCAMPO believes that when the public is engaged in the planning process, the needs of the community are better addressed and met. The PPP serves as a tool to provide MPO staff with the framework to facilitate communication and consultation between agencies making decisions and the communities affected by them. The result of effective and inclusive public engagement in the transportation planning process offers opportunities for the cooperative development of transportation projects and plans that reflect the needs of the community.

Goal & Objective of the Public Participation Plan

Public involvement is a key component to the transportation and planning process and requires MPO staff to proactively provide community stakeholders with access to information and with timely public notices. It also provides MPO staff the opportunity to explain the potential tradeoffs between desired outcomes and the possible alternatives available within fiscal constraint. Likewise, the MPO is committed to providing community members with fair and accessible opportunities for meaningful public involvement.
