Innovative Uses of Digital Video, Denver Regional Transportation District

The project delivers a national tool and template for public participation in transportation planning using digital video and assesses the effectiveness and limitations of video. The project delivers videos providing a citizens guide to NEPA, a citizen's guide to the regional transportation planning process and a case study of public involvement. Digital video can be an effective media for information transfer between practitioners and the public, can help improve citizen understanding and improve the effectiveness of the citizen's role in public involvement programs. Video should no longer be considered a luxurious extra, but a component of an overall outreach program that can be highly effective if integrated into a program of education, outreach and communication. Digital video has a focused role as one tool among many to address information transfer between practitioners and the public. The report presents supporting research and a technology transfer discussion focusing on video planning and production steps and provides recommendations for using the project videos, for adapting the project videos for refined purposes and creating new videos on similar and different topics.
