By involving the public early and actively seeking out the involvement of communities most affected by particular decisions, plans or projects, we ensure that the concerns and issues of people with a stake in these decisions are identified and addressed. Early and ongoing public involvement also brings diverse viewpoints into the decision making process, which supports better-informed decisions and mutual understanding and trust between MetroCOG and the public we serve.

Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Plan
MetroCOG’s outreach efforts ensure residents who are not proficient in English can effectively participate in the transportation planning process. MetroCOG ensures that all significant language groups are identified and incorporated into the public participation plan. MetroCOG continues to conduct outreach to traditionally under-served individuals and communities, which include but are not limited to low income, minority and Limited English Proficiency (LEP) persons. MetroCOG and GBVMPO use appropriate methods to notify the public of its activities and of opportunities for public involvement. The determination of which methods to use must be done for each individual planning project or study.
