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.
2020 Public Participation Plan (PPP)
The Memphis MPO’s 2020 Public Participation Plan (PPP) outlines the MPO’s public participation methods, the strategies for public engagement and outreach, and State and Federal regulations regarding public participation. The Memphis MPO continuously seeks to create opportunities for the public to participate in planning, reviewing, and implementing its transportation projects and programs. The PPP is updated on an as-needed basis. The Memphis MPO’s 2020 Public Participation Plan was adopted by the Transportation Policy Board on August 20, 2020.
Outreach and Tracking
Following the adoption of the 2014 Public Participation Plan, the Memphis MPO began tracking outreach efforts and developed the Annual Outreach Report. The Annual Report provided a quick snapshot on the outreach efforts conducted by MPO Staff in the last calendar year. Beginning in 2017 the State of the MPO Report replaced the Annual Outreach Report. The State of the MPO Report provides a broader look at the activities performed; engagement efforts, project milestones, and year-over-year comparisons.
