WSDOT Seeks Public Input on How to Improve Collaboration
OLYMPIA, June 10, 2015—Residents across the state still have time to help the Washington State Department of Transportation determine how the agency can best engage and collaborate with partners, stakeholders, tribes, communities and the public.
From the earliest planning stages through project and service delivery, the WSDOT Community Engagement Plan will guide the agency’s outreach and engagement efforts. Those efforts will continue into the maintenance and operations of a project, and help inform the outreach the agency conducts for future projects. The plan is designed to help increase consent on decisions, improve understanding, and improve public access to information and decision making.
Comments on the plan can be submitted by email to email@example.com and will be accepted until Monday, June 22.
The agency’s strategic plan, Results WSDOT, directs WSDOT to strengthen partnerships to increase credibility, drive priorities and inform decision making. The Community Engagement Plan is consistent with Results WSDOT, state law and federal expectations.
