What is the Public Participation Plan?
The plan establishes policies, processes and methods for engaging citizens, stakeholder groups, and other interested parties in transportation and transit planning. As required by federal regulations for Metropolitan Planning Organizations, the plan also establishes the public participation process for the Regional Transportation Plan and Transportation Improvement Program.
2019 Plan Changes
- Updates public involvement policies to meet updated federal standards
- Increases transparency for major amendments to the Transportation Improvement Program, a list of funded and approved transportation projects. Projects with a cost increase of $2 million or more, or greater than 25% of the total project cost are subject to a 21-day public comment period; the previous limits were $5 million or 20% of the total project cost.
- Adds committees formed or renamed since 2016, including the Southern Nevada Strong Steering Committee, Transportation Resource Advisory Committee, and Regional Project Coordination Committee.
- Incorporates the Southern Nevada Strong Regional Plan and Community Engagement Toolkit as an additional asset.
- Expands the list of potential key stakeholders, outreach tools and tactics, and resources.
- Adds best practices for online surveys, email marketing, and special events.
