Public Involvement Plan

In October 2019, PACTS adopted an updated PACTS Public Involvement Plan to enhance public engagement within transportation decision-making processes in our region. PACTS believes that broad and robust public involvement will result in transportation investments that better address the transportation needs of all those using the system. This plan provides guidance and tools for member municipalities, staff, and consultants on policies, requirements, and best practices. While the previous plan laid out the requirements and basic policy, this new plan outlines a pathway and offers practical tools for achieving robust and equitable public engagement.

Access to PACTS Meetings

Accommodations

Locations for all PACTS-sponsored meetings are accessible to people with disabilities and are near public transportation whenever possible. Upon request (two weeks in advance), every effort will be made to provide accommodations such as assistive-listening devices, materials in accessible formats and in languages other than English, and interpreters in American Sign Language and non-English languages.

Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status. Persons who require special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or persons who require translation services (free of charge) should contact Emily Ham, GPCOG Community Engagement Manager/Title VI Officer at 207-774-9891 or eham@gpcog.org at least seven days prior to the meeting.
