Public Participation Plan
The TPO’s Public Participation Plan (PPP) has been developed as a way to initiate proactive efforts for providing complete information, timely public notice and full access to key decision-making as it occurs in the planning process. The PPP underwent a major update in 2016 and was adopted by the TPO Board on November 23, 2016.
The TPO would like to thank you for taking the time to look at our Public Participation Plan.
The River to Sea TPO represents a diverse community and welcomes the thoughts and input of community advocates, citizens, businesses, students, etc. We believe that good decision-making occurs when all factors are fully considered. While much of our information comes from technical analyses, it is clear that the human experience provides important details that help to understand and support the data. This means gathering input from people throughout our communities to ensure we are aware of the needs that exist and impacts of projects be developed.
We would like you to be aware of the work we are doing and welcome any input that you can provide in whichever way is most comfortable for you – perhaps through email, visiting our website, giving us a call or attending one of our meetings.
