Public Involvement Opportunities

The development of this Transportation Plan / Urban Corridor Study included an extensive public involvement process. This process was designed to encourage public involvement and meaningful participation. Several public outreach activities were held on the project over the course of the project’s development. These public outreach activities were devoted to defining relevant issues, presenting preliminary findings of the analysis and studies of the existing transportation system, as well as population, employment and demographic changes. There was also public outreach activities scheduled during the development of recommendations to modify identified problem areas of the transportation system.

Towards the end of the project, additional public venues were held after the draft plan was published to discuss elements contained in the draft, and a public hearing was held before the Plan was produced in final form and adopted. The Whitefish Pilot and this website provided information relating to the times and locations of public meetings.
