Planning a transportation system for three counties can be a difficult task. Central Florida is expected to double in size by the year 2050. The population increase coupled with limited resources for increasing road capacity will require any future transportation plan to make better use of the existing system, while also increasing transportation options in the region. MetroPlan Orlando recognizes that the best way to plan for the future involves more than just technical work. Continuous, coordinated, and comprehensive public involvement is also a critical part of the planning process.
MetroPlan Orlando’s outreach activities are guided by an extensive public involvement plan, a requirement in federal and state law. We understand that most people are unable to attend public hearings or board meetings, so transportation updates are frequently organized through a speakers' bureau program. MetroPlan Orlando also participates in various community events throughout Central Florida.
During each event, we provide background information about MetroPlan Orlando, insight into the planning process, and upcoming changes to our transportation system. In turn, participants provide valuable feedback to board and committee members considering proposed action items.
