Public participation plays a key role in the planning process. Federal regulations stress enhanced public involvement. In order to comply with these mandates, the Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization developed a Public Participation Plan. The purpose of the policy is to identify a proactive public involvement process for the planning efforts undertaken by the TPO. This includes, but is not limited to, adherence to state and federal regulations regarding public notices and public hearings, complete access to information barring legal or fiduciary restraints, input to key decisions, development of demographic profiles for respective study areas of the TPO, and development and deployment of innovative public involvement strategies.
The Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization (RVTPO) fully complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities. For more information click here.
