Process and Timeline
The first step of the TDP will be an assessment of needs and existing conditions, addressing how the transit system is used today; present and future transportation needs and travel patterns; and documentation of the public’s preferences and priorities. Public engagement activities will include a community survey, online comment tools, open house style online events, pop-up meetings at community event, and interviews with stakeholder groups. Input from the public and stakeholders will be incorporated throughout the project, including the creation of goals, priorities, and performance measures; draft services; and strategic recommendations.
Generally, public engagement activities will be concentrated in three different phases in conjunction with major project milestones: The assessment of needs, draft service recommendations, and the draft TDP.
