Polk TPO Board Adopts Public Participation Plan

The Polk Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) adopted the Public Participation Plan at their April 14, 2016 Board meeting. 

The Public Participation Plan serves as a guidebook for the public as to how and when they can engage in the regional transportation planning and decision-making process.

The plan is organized into several sections:

  • How the public can submit comments
  • What the TPO will do with the comments it receives
  • When public meetings or comment periods will be held
  • How the public can find out how to get involved

OUTREACH STRATEGIES
The tools and opportunities to educate and engage the public in the regional transportation planning process.

EVALUATION
