CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING: THE BOSTON EXPERIENCE

This book examines "citizen participation" and the way it influences changes in basic public policy. It focuses on on the recent experience of metropolitan Boston with its transportation plan and program--a program which was dramatically altered by recent decisions of the governor of Massachusetts to scrap plans for completing expressway projects that had been in the process of construction for some years. Behind the governor's decisions is the story of a new method of doing business in transportation planning, a method that among other features called for "public participation" in the process of drawing up plans and recommending programs.
