Public Involvement in Transportation Planning

Non-Metropolitan Local Official Consultation Process Update:

Final Approved Process - updated March 8, 2011


Public meetings are frequently held around the state on transportation planning issues. If one is scheduled in your community, it will usually be announced on the Online Public Notice site. Most of these meetings deal with specific plans or projects directly affecting the community and are scheduled by the responsible project manager within DOT&PF.

If you have questions or concerns regarding transportation issues in your community, please contact your local city or borough government's planning and/or community development staff and let them know. They are typically the first point of contact for DOT&PF meetings or workshops in their respective communities.

There are, of course, other ways to become involved in transportation planning. You may:

Browse the STIP site for projects of interest to you. Plan/Project pages often have points of contact listed, and you may e-mail them directly.

We have a staff listing so may find a point of contact for your particular question.

Public involvement in transportation planning is governed by several laws and regulations. We have prepared a matrix to help indicate which rules govern our notification and consultation requirements for statewide transportation planning.
