A GUIDE FOR CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

The purpose of this study is to improve the effectiveness of citizen participation (CP). In Part I, the study includes a number of central priorities that are relevant to citizen participation such as the reasons for citizen participation, What hinders citizen participation? What are the essentials and how does one plan for informal groups, meetings, and hearings. Part II addresses the problem of citizen participation in rural communities. It is noted that there are differences between villages and cities and between the values of rural and urban residents. These differences require significant adjustments in the ways of incorporating citizen participation in transportation planning. This study is directed principally to agency personnel responsible for planning and decision making, with the hope that its use may assist planners or decision makers to better utilize their own experience and research.
