The Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) views public outreach as a major component of the planning process. Citizen participation affirms the rights of the community to be informed and to provide comments to and receive responses back from the local government. It also provides a mechanism to express needs and meet goals for civic involvement. A successful public participation process provides citizens the information and the opportunity they need to make an informed decision about planning issues.
The Public Participation Plan (PPP) is intended to provide direction for public involvement activities to be conducted by the MPO and contains the policies, goals, objectives, and techniques that may be used by the MPO for public involvement.
