Public Involvement

Documents for Public Review and Comment

Many FAMPO documents require public review and comment. All comments will be considered before the documents are formally approved. Four documents will be released for public review and comment on May 20, 2020. These documents are listed below with links to directions on how to review and comment on each one. The comment period ends on June 19, 2020.
