Public Participation Plan
In accordance with federal guidance, CMAP has drafted a plan for a meaningful, proactive public involvement process to provide complete and timely information to regional stakeholders. The draft Public Participation Plan is available on CMAP's website for review and comment by Tuesday, May 21, 2019. The website includes details on how to comment by email, phone, and mail.
We welcome your comments. The final version of the Public Participation Plan, reflecting the comments received, will be brought to the CMAP Board for approval at its June 19, 2019, meeting.
Local methods for selecting Surface Transportation Program projects
Throughout the summer, the local Councils of Mayors and City of Chicago will be seeking public comment on proposed methodologies for selecting local projects to be funded through the Surface Transportation Program. Each council will adopt a methodology that incorporates performance-based programming and regional planning factors by September 30, 2019.
CMAP and the Councils will publicize each opportunity for public comment. Currently the Lake, Kane/Kendall, and Will councils are inviting comments. Details can be found here.
