Public Participation

Public Involvement Policies and Practices

Each MPO must have a formal Public Involvement Plan that provides citizens with complete information, timely public notice, full access to key decisions and opportunities for early and continuing involvement in the transportation planning process.  Plans must be updated as needed to stay with relevant Federal regulations.

Title VI Environmental Justice and Non-Discrimination Plan

The principle of environmental justice in transportation planning ensures that transportation projects do not have a disproportionately negative impact on minority and low-income populations. The goal is to achieve environmental justice protection for all communities.  As a Metropolitan Planning Organization, PACTS examines how future transportation plans and investments address Title VI issues and attain equitable distribution of services, facilities and resources within the PACTS planning area.
