The Public Participation Plan

The Memphis MPO recognizes that an effective participation process is a vital element in the development and implementation of transportation plans and programs.  The Memphis 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 Memphis 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.

The Current Plan

The Memphis MPO’s Public Participation Plan was developed in consultation with all interested parties. The plan was developed in coordination with the statewide transportation planning public involvement and consultation process. It ensures that all interested parties have reasonable opportunities to comment on the contents of Memphis MPO plans and documents. 

The Public Participation Plan is a resource document that guides public participation for all Memphis MPO activities and events. The current Memphis MPO Public Participation Plan was adopted by the Transportation Policy Board on November 20, 2014.
