How Are We Doing? Be Part of Our Federal Certification with USDOT
Posted on: March 1, 2023 in Public Meetings
Share your comments on Central Florida’s transportation planning process with representatives from the U.S. Department of Transportation at a public meeting on 3/15.
Every four years, MetroPlan Orlando undergoes a mandatory federal certification with representatives from the Federal Highway and Federal Transit administrations. A team representing these USDOT agencies will visit March 15, 2023 to confirm we are following transportation planning laws and regulations.
How To Comment
As part of the certification process, a hybrid public meeting will be held on March 15, 2023 at 9 a.m. You can participate in person at the MetroPlan Orlando office (250 S. Orange Ave., Suite 200, Orlando, FL 32801) or virtually through Zoom (click here to join meeting or view calendar listing for full Zoom information).
We welcome input on transportation policies and MetroPlan Orlando’s planning work. Comments will be taken into consideration by the federal team in the certification review report.
