CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM PLANNING: A CASE STUDY

Techniques for citizen involvment are discussed in the context of the traditional urban transportation planning process. Deficiencies in past approaches to citizen participation and planning efforts are identified. A case of a current project in which an intensive effort is being made to achieve citizen participation as part of a small urban area study is reported. The citizen participation program seeks to identify the appropriate roles for citizen input to a multimodal system plan. The project demonstrates techniques and identifies weaknesses in both the citizen participation process and the planning process. Preliminary findings and recommendations are presented. /Author/
