Public Participation Plan (PPP)

The Public Participation Plan (PPP) establishes a set of policies and techniques through which the MPO can offer opportunities for the public to be involved in transportation planning activities. The PPP is an example of the MPO’s support of and encouragement for public participation as well as the MPO’s mandate to adhere to the principles of Environmental Justice in the metropolitan planning process.

Specifically, the PPP outlines tools and time limits for public involvement for the three other major plans required for completion by the MPO:
