CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN WESTSIDE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

This paper describes an experiment in citizen participation in Atlanta, Georgia, as seen through the eyes of a citizen who is also a professional transportation planner. Communication difficulties are identified among the three stakeholder groups--the citizens, the study design team, and the decision-makers. These difficulties are attributed to strong feelings of mistrust, which were reinforced as the citizens attempted to create a citizen-dominated executive board that could participate in policy-making at the highest level.
