REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS
DRAFT FY 2018 PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN (PPP)
The Eastern Shore Metropolitan Planning Organization has prepared the Draft FY 2018 Public Participation Plan (PPP) for review by the ESMPO Policy Board in April 2018.
The PPP is a cooperative effort between the U.S. Department of transportation (USDOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT), ESMPO member governments and citizens living within the ESMPO planning area. A primary purpose of the ESMPO is to encourage community involvement during the transportation planning process. The PPP outlines the manner in which the public is reached, encouraging the maximum amount of participation possible. The PPP outlines the processes for involving the public in transportation planning under federal and state regulations and guidelines for preparing the primary planning documents; Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP), Public Participation Plan (PPP), and the Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. The PPP sets measurable goals and performance evaluations.
The Draft PPP will be available for review at the locations listed below from February 7th through March 26th. The MPO welcomes comments during the public comment period and at any MPO meeting. The document may also be viewed on the ESMPO website, www.easternshorempo.org.
There will be two public input meetings held in Fairhope and in Loxley soliciting input and comments regarding the Draft PPP. The first Public Meeting will be held at the Fairhope Satellite Courthouse, Commission Conference Room, on February 20th between 5-6 p.m. The second Public Meeting will be held at Loxley Town Hall on March 8th between 5-6 p.m.
