Achieving Meaningful Public Involvement Outcomes in Transportation Decision-Making

Wednesday, November 30 | 2 p.m. (ET) / 11 a.m. (PT)

As state DOTs and transportation agencies work to deliver projects that improve community infrastructure and services, many experience challenges associated with providing equitable opportunities and meaningful public engagement.   

In this webinar on Wednesday, November 30, public engagement experts will share how practitioners in all modes of transportation across various roles, including policy, planning, engineering, operations, civil rights, environmental justice, and public involvement, are utilizing technology and creative strategies to meet these challenges and engage the public in their decision-making processes. 

Using the newly released guide from the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) as inspiration, this webinar will discuss applications of the guide’s six features of meaningful public involvement: 

  1. Understand community demographics
  2. Build durable community relationships
  3. Understand community wants and needs
  4. Involve broad representation of community
  5. Use community-preferred engagement techniques
  6. Document and share community’s impact on decisions

Meaningful public involvement that starts early and includes full representation from all communities is critical to successful project delivery. PublicInput is pleased to invite a wide array of Staff and decision makers to this timely session where you will leave with actionable insights related to the DOT’s newly released guide.
