Public Participation Plan
As the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), Tri-County Regional Planning Commission maintains the Public Participation Plan (PPP), which satisfies the interested parties, participation, and consultation requirement described in Title 23 Code of Federal Regulation Section 450.316. The Public Participation Plan: 2021 Update is the current PPP, adopted on June 24, 2021, for the Peoria-Pekin Urbanized Area MPO.
The Public Participation Plan (PPP) is a required document that sets forth the policy by which the MPO involves public officials, community leaders, organizations, and the general public in the region’s transportation planning process. The document explains the MPO, the legal aspects of public participation in transportation planning, federally mandated transportation planning documents, public involvement strategies, and metrics to measure engagement.
Tri-County is dedicated to providing access to the transportation planning process and associated planning documents to all people regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, socio-economic status, English proficiency, or disability. To learn more about the public participation policy and procedure TCRPC follows for the transportation planning process, review the PPP document below or visit the Public Involvement web page.
*The adoption of the PPP 2021 Update was one of the last acts of the Peoria-Pekin Urbanized Area Transportation Study (PPUATS) Policy Committee before merging with the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission board on July 1, 2021.
