TRPA’s public participation process gives residents, visitors, and commuters ample time for early, meaningful, and continued involvement in transportation planning and project review. Diverse public input helps TRPA determine what types of projects meet public needs and desires and also ensures that public funds are directed to the areas of highest need. Transparent and inclusive processes increase public participation and ensure well-prepared and publicly-supported plans and projects.
Opportunities for the public to engage with TRPA include ongoing workshops and events, surveys, and field audits. To stay up to date on all public engagement opportunities, please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and sign up for our monthly e-newsletter. Learn more about our public participation process by reading our 2016 Public Participation Plan and 2015 Community Outreach Report (Executive Summary).
Want TRPA transportation planning staff to come talk to you? Contact our staff and tell them what transportation topic you or your group are most interested in talking about. Joining volunteer groups like the Regional Coordinating Council, Social Services Transportation Advisory Council, South Shore Transportation Management Association, Truckee North Tahoe Transportation Management Association, Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition, Community Mobility Workgroup, or City of South Lake Tahoe Bicycle Advisory Committee is another great way to get involved.
