Public Participation is an integral part of the planning process. At FAMPO, we believe that the best decisions are made with a fully-informed and involved public, and your opinion makes a difference on vital transportation and planning issues in the region. Through a constructive dialogue, planners, decision-makers and the public can share their opinions and mutually shape a vision for our region. Your input is important, and it’s how elected officials get an understanding of our region’s needs.
There are many ways that you can get involved and make a difference. It all depends on your time and interest!
