Public Involvement: 2030 Regional Transportation Plan 2006 Update
The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning sponsored seven public workshops throughout Northeastern Illinois in which the public had the opportunity to make comments on the 2030 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) Update. These meetings took place between May 16th and June 15th, 2006. The comments from these meetings, as well as the surveys, will be added to the official public record for the 2030 RTP Update.
The 2030 Regional Transportation Plan Update Presentation was used at each of the seven public meetings. It is intended to provide a basic introduction to transportation planning in Northeastern Illinois, the agencies involved, and the 2030 Regional Transportation Plan.
Meetings and Reports
The following reports provide a brief account of each of the seven public meetings. Included within each report are listings of the projects and priorities that the public deemed important within the 2030 Regional Transportation Plan Update through their participation in the game, Transopoly (SM).

This report and the addenda were prepared and reviewed as part of the 2030 RTP 2006 Update. They were also presented to the Board of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning for consideration as the region develops its program for public engagement in the integration of land use and transportation planning.
The participant handbook was provided to each person in attendance at the seven public meetings. The handbook lists the main priorities of the 2030 Regional Transportation Plan, as well as providing a list of projects to be considered by the public. Through the use of the Transopoly (SM) game, participants at each of the meetings were able to prioritize which of the projects they deemed important, as well as provide general comments on transportation planning in Northeastern Illinois.
