This article describes the efforts of the Policy and Systems Analysis (PSA) team at the Kentucky Transportation Center in developing the Structured Public Involvement (SPI) framework to improve stakeholder satisfaction with both the process and the outcomes of public involvement in transportation decisions. The PSA team integrates three diverse methods into the SPI protocols: visualization technologies, facilitation techniques, and decision theory. SPI encourages a shared understanding of the issues by placing the technologies in a social context.
