Public Involvement

II. What Is Public Involvement?

Public involvement-sometimes called public participation-is a process to capture the tribal community's values and needs; to share information; and, in some cases, reach consensus on planning issues. A variety of techniques should be employed during public involvement to ensure all citizens have the opportunity to get involved in the planning process. The public involvement process should help tribal members understand the planning process and their role in deciding their community's transportation future.
