Details

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)’s Research Report 905: Measuring the Effectiveness of Public Involvement in Transportation Planning and Project Development.

This webinar will illustrate how transportation agencies can use a rigorously tested, user-friendly tool to measure the effectiveness of their public involvement. The Public Involvement Effectiveness Measurement Toolkit enables agency professionals to track performance throughout the project lifecycle, identify strengths and weaknesses of public involvement activities, and support their decisions about how to allocate resources. The Public Involvement Effectiveness Measurement Toolkit may be used with various types of projects, including building new facilities, changes to existing facilities, and planning efforts. The presenters will provide ways to  deploy this toolkit.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar.  Sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
