Public Participation Plan
The Public Participation Plan (PPP) guides public participation activities conducted by the Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization (the “MPO”). According to Federal law, a metropolitan planning organization must be designated for each urbanized area with a population of 50,000 or more. The MPO serves as a forum for a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning process and its Transportation Policy Board (the “Policy Board”) is the authority in approving how Federal transportation dollars are spent in the region.
The process outlined in the Public Participation Plan is the basis for the development of the twenty-five year Metropolitan Transportation Plan and its amendments. The process shall result in plans and programs that consider all transportation modes and supports metropolitan community development and social goals. These plans and programs shall lead to the development and operation of an integrated, multimodal transportation system that facilitates the efficient, economic movement of people and goods. The memorandum of agreement between the New Mexico Department of Transportation and the Santa Fe MPO clearly identifies the MPO’s responsibilities for carrying out transportation planning and programming.
