Transportation affects quality of life for everyone in the region, so it’s essential for the public to be involved in transportation planning. MetroPlan Orlando’s active public involvement program ensures that the community has opportunities to provide feedback as transportation plans are being developed.
Two public participation Plans
The MetroPlan Orlando Board approved two public participation plans that outline our public outreach process. These plans were approved after a 45-day public comment period.
The Public Participation Plan for our 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan, which is our long-range planning document that is updated every five years, outlines how we will engage Central Floridians in the process of creating a vision for Central Florida transportation in the year 2045.
MetroPlan Orlando’s 2019 Public Participation Plan, is the overall outline of our community outreach process. This plan updates a Public Involvement Plan for the organization that was approved in 2016 by the MetroPlan Orlando Board. This plan includes descriptions of how we make outreach continuous, cooperative, and coordinated and shows how we will measure our efforts in the region. We will publish on our website periodic reviews of the plan to demonstrate how our public involvement activities are working.
For questions or more information on either plan, please call 407-481-5672 x305.
