Public Participation Plan (PPP)

Public Participation Plan - Background

Public Participation Plan - Development

As a result of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), BCAG is required to prepare a Public Participation Plan (PPP). The PPP is intended to provide and document the direction for public involvement activities to be conducted by BCAG.

Objectives of the Public Participation Plan:
  • Raise level of understanding of the transportation planning process in Butte County and identify how interested citizens can participate.
  • Maximize opportunity for public involvement in the transportation process.
  • Maintain contact with interested citizens and key stakeholders throughout the process of developing plans and projects.
The public is encouraged to inform BCAG staff about what would be helpful in addressing the objectives of the Public Participation Plan.

Public Participation Plan

January 2014 - NOTICE TO AMEND Public Participation Plan - Comment period is December 20, 2013 up until it is approved on February 27, 2014.  BCAG is proposing to amend its Public Participation Program (PPP) to revise Policy 1.2. The intent of this revision is to modify the language which currently requires a published public notice in each of the local newspapers for FTIP and MTP/SCS amendments. The revision would state one public notice in the local newspaper where the project generally lies.   This item is being presented for information to the BCAG Board at its January 23, 2014 meeting.  Approval would occur on February 27, 2014.
Public Participation Plan Document - Amendment #04 - PPP Language Amendment: Revise Policy 1.2 to read, “BCAG shall notice the public comment period for Plan and Program amendments in at least one local newspaper in the area where the project is generally located, as appropriate.”
