The Region 1 Planning Council is looking for public participation in the form of a digital
survey that will be used for the Public Participation Plan for the Rockford Metropolitan Area
that is currently under development.
Transportation affects each of us, every day, but not in the same way. That is why it is essential that a wide
variety of individuals, businesses, and organizations are engaged in the regional planning process and that
their voices are heard. To continually improve the public engagement process, Region 1 Planning Council
(R1PC) is currently updating the Public Participation Plan, a federally required document for all Metropolitan
Planning Organizations (MPO). The purpose of this document is to set forth the policies, procedures, methods
and details for involving the general public and area transportation stakeholders in the transportation
planning and programming activities of the Rockford Metropolitan Agency for Planning (RMAP), the MPO for
the Rockford Metropolitan Area.
The Survey will be available for submittal to R1PC until November 30, 2017.
