Draft Public Participation Plan (PPP) Released for Public Comment
Public Comment Period
March 23, 2017 - May 6, 2017

Dear Public Information Officers and Communications Managers,

The Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO) has initiated a 45-day public comment period for its Draft Public Participation Plan (PPP).  

The purpose of the PPP is to provide all interested parties a reasonable opportunity to comment on the FAMPO's plans, programs and projects. This Plan recognizes the need for a robust public involvement at all stages of regional transportation planning, and describes methods and strategies for public participation addressing outreach to a broadly defined audience of interested parties. 

It is intended to encourage, facilitate and follow through on public comments, concerns and suggestions by establishing procedures for providing full public access to information and decisions, timely public notices, and early and continuing public involvement in plan development.

Because transportation in our region affects everyone, FAMPO would appreciate if you would share this important opportunity for citizens to comment on this draft Public Participation Plan.

A public hearing will take place during the FAMPO Policy Committee meeting on Monday, May 15, 2017.  The meeting will begin at 7:15 p.m. and will be held at the GWRC/FAMPO office located at 406 Princess Anne Street in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  Directions can be obtained by visiting the FAMPO website or by calling the GWRC/FAMPO office at (540) 373-2890.  If assistance is needed at the public hearing, contact the Title VI Coordinator at the above phone number or email to fampo@gwregion.org.
