Public Involvement

Our goal at the Polk TPO is not only to support the development of a safer, more mobile transportation system, but also to ensure that our planning process incorporates the feedback and needs of all people in Polk County.

Public Participation Plan (PPP)

The TPO's goal is to implement a proactive public participation process that provides complete information, timely public notice, and public access to key decisions with early and continuing public involvement in the development of transportation plans, programs, projects and services.

Limited English Proficiency Plan (LEP)

Nearly 1 in 5 Polk County residents speak a language other than English at home and projections indicate the percentage of people who speak English as the primary language will continue to decrease. The LEP is an overview of the strategies and resources the TPO makes available to ensure that there is no language barrier that keeps someone from participating in the transportation planning process.
