Public Participation Plan

The Public Participation Plan (PPP) provides guidance for the Tulare County Association of Governments (TCAG) elected officials and staff in public participation and interagency consultation throughout the regional planning process. It contains the policies, guidelines and procedures TCAG uses in developing the Metropolitan planning process. This includes the development and approval of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), Regional and Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP), Overall Work Program (OWP) and environmental review documentation related to growth, transportation, air quality, and any product prepared by TCAG staff that statutorily requires public participation, or for which the TCAG Board of Directors determines is necessary. TCAG carries out its transportation and air quality planning responsibilities in a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive manner in conformance with federal and state Law that determine how Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) provide for early consultation and public participation.
