The Charlotte County-Punta Gorda Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) announces that a 45-day public comment period on proposed revisions to the MPO’s Public Participation Plan (PPP) and the accompanying Title VI Program has begun and will continue until March 25, 2019. Copies of this document will also be available at all Public Library locations throughout Charlotte County.
The Charlotte County – Punta Gorda MPO recognizes that an effective participation
process is a vital element in the development and implementation of transportation plans and programs. The MPO’s Public Participation Plan (PPP) encourages the entire community to participate in developing feasible alternatives and encourages community leaders to support the regional transportation network. The process also increases public awareness of transportation services and programs.
The PPP essentially acts as a handbook that outlines the MPO’s public participation methods, strategies for public engagement and outreach, and state and Federal regulations regarding public participation. In this way, the PPP guides how the MPO conducts most of its projects and interacts with the public.
