Public Outreach Program

Home » Our Work

Transparency in transportation planning is one of the main reasons metropolitan planning organizations (MPO) exist. It is our job to make sure that everyone can participate. This is most important to communities that are underserved by the transportation system or lack access to the decision-making process. There are many ways to get involved, from commenting on projects and plans to becoming a member of the Regional Transportation Advisory Council.

At the MPO meeting on August 19, 2021, the board voted to release a new draft Public Outreach Plan (PDF) (HTML) for a 45-day public review period. The POP guides our efforts to ensure everyone has access to the transportation planning process. The POP covers the full range of opportunities for members of the public to shape transportation decision-making in the region, from MPO meetings to in-person and online forums, digital communications, and pop-up outreach events.

Recognizing the impact of COVID-19, the updated plan focuses on virtual public involvement opportunities and guidelines. The new POP states the principles that the MPO has committed to for all public outreach activities. The MPO will accept comments on the draft POP until 5:00 PM on October 6, 2021. Please send comments to publicinfo@ctps.org or through our feedback form. The MPO expects to vote to endorse the new POP at its meeting on October 21, 2021.

In addition to the POP, the new POP Guidebook (PDF) (HTML) provides quick, easy access to information on how to engage with the MPO.
