Draft Public Participation Plan Available for Public Comment Now
A draft Public Participation Plan has been released by MATS for public comment, until and including the August 7th, 2018 MATS Policy Committee meeting. The document is available for review here, and comments can be submitted just by commenting below, emailing MATS staff, or on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
The MATS Public Participation Plan is the document that describes and guides our efforts to communicate, inform, and alert the public about the various transportation planning actions, documents, and opportunities for input that MATS produces. Public participation is the process by which interested and affected individuals, organizations, agencies and government entities are consulted and included in the decision-making process.
This draft plan is a revision of the document originally approved by MATS' Policy Committee in February 2014, and subsequently revised in 2016. This version adds more specific information about how MATS will post things like meeting notices and documents, as well as how we will gauge the effectiveness of reaching the public through efforts such as our social media pages.
