Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization Announces Public Participation Plan Published

The 2021 update of the Dover/Kent County Public Participation Plan was recently approved by the MPO Council and is now available for viewing on the Dover/Kent County MPO website. The PPP provides the outline to effectively involve the public in transportation planning. Like a blueprint, the PPP provides general information to help reach a desired result – to involve the public in the planning process and incorporate articulated wants and needs into all MPO documents. Helen Wiles, public outreach manager for the Dover/Kent County MPO says, “We always say Get Your Voice Heard when we talk about the MPO and what we are trying to do with transportation in Kent County. This is basically the plan as to how we engage those voices.”

The update also includes innovations that came from the COVID-19 lockdowns, as well as the introduction of some new technologies.

The Public Participation Plan can be accessed on the Dover Kent/County MPO website at www.doverkentmpo.org/public-participation-plan/.

Any comments or concerns that people have can be sent to Helen Wiles, Public Outreach Manager for the MPO. Ms. Wiles can be reached by phone at 302-387-6026 or email at helen.wiles@doverkentmpo.org.

The Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization is a federally funded not-for-profit that works with local, state and federal governments along with local transportation organizations to ensure that transportation planning and projects are done in compliance with Federal mandates to include the Federal Clean Air Act and the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST).
