The Public Participation Plan (PPP) is a blueprint for action to involve and engage the public in transportation planning. The PPP provides a guide for public access to and involvement with the SCTPO planning process. Meaningful and effective participation is essential to the successful implementation of a public plan, project, or program, and is necessary to ensure the needs of the local citizenry are adequately addressed. All SCTPO planning work products, as well as major amendments to adopted plans and programs, must follow the requirements outlined in the PPP. Public input during the development of the PPP is essential to make sure the process provides full and open access to all.
The SCTPO’s Public Participation Plan:
- Outlines organizational structure and work products
- Describes SCTPO public communication tools
- Prescribes public comment periods
- Offers opportunities for public involvement
- Adopted every three years
