Public and Agency Involvement is Critical to a Successful PEL

The process will involve many individuals and groups to inform the study, develop and screen alternatives, and review the Draft PEL Study. This includes agencies, Tribes, elected officials, utilities, emergency responders, businesses, nonprofits, community organizations, and the public.

We are committed to conducting a process that is equitable and responsive to the needs of traditionally underserved communities. This means:

    • Providing accessible, inclusive, and convenient opportunities to engage.
    • Reaching out to and integrating feedback from individuals and groups that are traditionally underserved by existing transportation systems.
    • Communicating with you regarding the feedback we have received.
