Why Get Involved?
Public involvement is an important part of transportation planning. The decision making process is improved when the MPOs have input from the community and a variety of stakeholders. The public involvement process was designed to make information easily accessible to anyone interested.
Opportunities for public involvement are a cornerstone of the transportation planning process that WestCOG takes very seriously. You can find our Public Participation Plan, the Title VI Civil Rights & Public Participation Plan, here.
How to Get Involved?
Participate! The easiest way to get involved is to attend an MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization) or TTAG (Transportation Technical Advisory Group) meeting.
WestCOG welcomes public involvement. All agency and committee meetings are open to the public.
Input from the public is vital to the planning process. WestCOG is currently seeking comments for the draft HVMPO and SWRMPO Long Range Transportation Plans and draft Air Quality Conformity document.
More information about the public comment period, which closes April 18, 2019, can be found here.
