Public Participation Plan
MTC's 2015 Public Participation Plan
MTC is updating its Public Participation Plan. Share your ideas online via the Plan Bay Area Open Forum on how best to involve Bay Area residents in key planning and funding allocation decisions, including
State and federal law requires MTC to adopt a participation plans to provide interested residents with opportunities to be involved in the transportation planning process. MTC’s current Public Participation Plan (PPP) was adopted in 2010 and informs interested residents on how to engage in the range of MTC’s decisions relating to planning and funding allocations. Included in the updated PPP will be information highlighting planning and decision milestones, along with public engagement opportunities, for Plan Bay Area — the region’s long-range transportation and land-use blueprint that MTC adopts with the Association of Bay Area Governments.
MTC and ABAG anticipate an extensive outreach effort with local governments (cities, counties, congestion management agencies, and transit agencies) and the public as part of the process of developing the update to Plan Bay Area. In addition to a partnership among local governments, nonprofit and other organizations will have the opportunity to weigh in on issues and policies to be included in the updated Plan.
Draft Public Participation Plan Schedule
Updating the PPP can be viewed as a key first step to making the Plan Bay Area process transparent and accessible. Key dates leading up to adoption of the Draft PPP are listed below.
