PUBLIC PARTICIPATION IN THE METROPOLITAN TORONTO TRANSPORTATION PLAN REVIEW

A public participation program cannot be reduced to a flow chart, nor will a program that has been effective in one area necessarily be effective in another area. Principles that guided the Metropolitan Toronto Transportation Plan Review included the following: develop planning alternatives that incorporate a number of different viewpoints and that offer something to everyday; do not agree to a level of participation that cannot be adequately serviced; follow a policy of open information; work within the traditional decision-making process; maintain day-to-day contacts with media; meet people on their own terms; broaden the base of involvement; rely on the use of community resources; and hire participation staff with strong community skills and limited knowledge of planning. /Author/
