Public participation is essential to the development of successful regional transportation solutions and to minimizing adverse project impacts.  It’s also a requirement of both the federal government and Washington State.  The Whatcom Council of Governments’ Public Participation Plan was adopted by WCOG in October of 2009 and updated in November 2014. It provides guidelines for establishing and maintaining robust public involvement throughout the transportation planning process.
