2021 PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLAN (PPP)

Adopted by the Transportation Policy Committee on July 1, 2021

Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) were formed specifically to empower local citizens and their communities with a strong voice in achieving their transportation goals and improving regional transportation. MPOs exist throughout the United States in all urbanized areas of more than 50,000 people and have the authority to plan, prioritize, and program federal funding for transportation projects in urban/metropolitan areas. The Corpus Christi MPO Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) is the designated forum for municipalities, counties, transit agencies, tribal governments, state and private agencies to address regional transportation issues.

This 2021 Public Particpation Plan identifies the outreach and involvement activities for the 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Planning (MTP) process and for updates to the FY 2021-2024 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) process beginning July 1, 2021 and ending September 30, 2025.
