COMMUNITY ACCEPTANCE OF HIGHWAY CORRIDOR DEVELOPMENT

Citizen imputs are virtually prerequisite to community acceptance of public works projects. An innovative process developed in Louisville, Kentucky was utilized in the planning of the upgrading of an existing, inadequate expressway. Over 2,000 citizens were involved in the process that began at the very start of the planning process and continued systematically throughout. Techniques employed were designed to give full opportunity for individuals and groups to articulate perceived needs, values, and priorities; and to identify community-wide concerns and priorities -- in other words, a general context -- against individual and neighborhood needs which could be measured relative to the expressway planning program.
