The MPO provides a continuous, cooperative, and comprehensive planning process for the area. As part of this process, the MPO solicits public review and comment on the work, projects, and products that it creates and proposes.
The MPO’s public participation process is outlined in the Public Participation Plan. The process aims to provide citizens, stakeholder groups, and other interested parties with reasonable opportunities to be involved in planning processes.
Ways to Get Involved
There are multiple ways for people to get involved in the MPO, including:
- Public meetings – check out the calendar for upcoming meetings, programs and events
