Public Participation

MAPO operates its programs without regard to race, color, or national origin. Members of the public are encouraged stay involved with MAPO’s ongoing planning and study activities. Not only is robust public input a vital element to successful planning and implementation; it is federally required by 23 CFR 450.316. MAPO’s Public Participation Plan is available for review and download here. There are a variety of ways to engage with MAPO, including:Songs on the Lawn 6.14.18
