The Strafford Public Participation Plan (PPP) documents the actions to be carried out by the Strafford Metropolitan Planning Organization to ensure that opportunities exist for the public to be involved in transportation planning activities, pursuant to Title 23 CFR 450.316 of Statewide Planning; Metropolitan Planning and Criteria and Procedures for Determining Conformity to State or Federal Implementation Plans of Transportation Plans, Programs and Projects; and Statewide Transportation Planning Rules.
Public participation is essential for informing the transportation planning activities of the Strafford Metropolitan Planning Organization. This document will serve as the organizational public participation guide for implementing transportation policy and conducting project planning and development. The Strafford Public Participation Plan policies have been adopted by the Strafford Metropolitan Planning Organization's Policy Committee.
During the spring and summer of 2017 the "2014 Public Participation Plan" was updated to reflect new practices and processes on behalf of Strafford MPO, in relation to public engagement. The plan was out for public comment beginning Aug. 1, and ending on Sept. 14. A public hearing for the plan was held at the Sept. 15 Policy meeting [view the presentation on the PPP here]. The plan was brought before the Strafford MPO Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) at their Oct. 6, 2017 meeting, and was recommended for approval. The Policy Committee approved the PPP at their Oct. 20, 2017 meeting.
