Public Participation Plan

The Polk Transportation Planning Organization is seeking comments from the public on the Draft Public Participation Plan. The 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:

  • Outlines public involvement policies;
  • Describes TPO public communication tools (outreach strategies); and
  • Measures both the quantity and quality of interaction with the public.

This is an update to the Public Participation Plan adopted by the TPO in June 2015.

Draft Public Participation Plan

The comment period for the Draft Public Participation Plan is June 10 to July 25, 2019. After the comment period closes and all input has been considered, the draft plan will be presented for final adoption to the TPO Board at their meeting on August 8, 2019.

Printed copies are available upon request. Anyone interested in submitting a comment may do so by contacting Julia Davis, Senior Transportation Planner, by email at juliadavis@polk-county.net, mail to 330 West Church Street, Bartow, FL 33831, or call (863) 534-6529.
