March 2007: Public Comment Period on Draft Participation Plan

The SAFETEA-LU (Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users) is the most recent law establishing Federal transportation policy and funding authorizations. Under this law the Gainesville-Hall Metropolitan Planning Organization (GHMPO) is required to develop a Participation Plan that expands the GHMPOs current Public Involvement Plan to include consultation with representatives of various intermodal transportation agencies, and other interested parties on various ongoing transportation planning activities. The Participation Plan requires a minimum public-comment period of 45 days before its official adoption. Public and interested agencies can review and comment on the document by clicking the Draft Participation Plan link below. A hardcopy of the document is available at the Hall County Planning Department, located in the Development Services Center at 440 Prior Street, S.E., Gainesville, Georgia. Official adoption of the Participation Plan will be on the agenda of the GHMPO Policy Committee at their regular meeting on May 8, 2007.
