MVRPC Public Participation Policy

MVRPC has long been committed to meaningful and proactive public involvement. Throughout the years many methods have been refined and successfully employed to attain valuable public input, resulting in commendations from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). This updated Public Participation Policy (updated November 2015) represents a combination of MVRPC’s past successful methods and the latest techniques proven by other Metropolitan Planning Organizations to be successful input devices. Items highlighted, bolded and italicized are newly added as of November 2015.

This policy is intended to guide and facilitate meaningful discussion and consensus building throughout the transportation planning process, as well as in other non-transportation related, but regionally significant plans and studies.
