Public Participation Plan being updated

PSRC seeking public comment

PSRC is seeking public comment on its draft Public Participation Plan. The 45-day public comment period will run from October 30 to December 14, 2018.

The Plan is being updated to reflect changes to public comment at PSRC meetings. Under the new plan, public comment at PSRC board meetings would need to be in reference to an action or discussion item on the agenda. The draft plan also removes public comment from the agendas of committee meetings primarily composed of staff.

The draft Public Participation Plan also reflects improvements to the accessibility of documents posted on the website.

View the draft Public Participation Plan or request a copy from PSRC's Information Center at (206) 464-7532. An accessible MS Word document of the plan is available.

PSRC worked with its membership, boards and committees, interagency consultation process, stakeholder groups, interested parties and the public to develop its public involvement practices. PSRC adopted its first Public Participation Plan in 1993.  It was updated in 1994, 2002, 2007, 2012 and last in 2016. It was refined through public processes by incorporating outreach strategies that proved effective in involving the public during specific studies, as well as new federal and state guidance.
