PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

The MPO held a Stakeholder Workshop on February 5, 2014 to gather input on the 2040 MTP.  The meeting was attended by transportation advocates representing the entities, transit, health, the disabled, the elderly, the schools, and others.


In late January and early February, staff held public meetings to seek input on transportation needs for the area.  These meetings were held at San Juan College, Sycamore Park Community Center, San Juan County Administrative Building, and the Bloomfield Cultural Center.

In August and September, staff undertook more public outreach through stakeholder meeting groups, public open houses, an online survey mapping tool, and a paper version of the survey. The documents summarizing the results and recommendations from this public outreach are available below:
