Public Participation Plan (PPP)
CAMPO's guide to reaching out to the public at large and targeted outreach strategies for traditionally underengaged communities. Originally adopted in 2012, the latest update was adopted in August of 2019.
DRAFT Update to the PPP - May/June 2020
Out of an abundance of caution, MPO staff are recommending adding language to the PPP that specifically mentions the permissibility of electronic meetings. Currently, the North Carolina Open Meetings Law, which the MPO abides by as stated in the approved PPP, includes language enabling electronic meetings and voting. Also, in the fall of 2019, the Executive Board adopted an updated PPP that incorporated language related to online participation, however, that language did not address meetings that are solely held electronically - with no in-person option available. The current proposed update lists the reasonable steps the MPO should take to ensure meetings held solely electronically are as publicly accessible as feasible. It addresses requirements for notification as well as providing the public with the means to both view and listen to the meeting in real-time.
The DRAFT update is available for public review and comment until June 18, 2020 with a public hearing scheduled for the Executive Board meeting on June 17, 2020. Comments can be submitted through the webform, via email to email@example.com, via phone to 919-996-4403, or via U.S. Mail to: CAMPO, Attn: Bonnie Parker, 421 Fayetteville St., Suite 203, Raleigh, NC 27601.
