NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN to all citizens of the Kingsport Tennessee-Virginia area and the public at large, the Kingsport Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization’s (MTPO) amended Public Participation Plan (PPP) is available for a required 45-day public review/comment period (which ends August 6, 2019). The PPP guides how all new transportation plans and improvement programs are brought to the public and intergovernmental agencies for review and comment. It is very important to our organization, and to our resulting transportation plans, that we seek input and ideas from our stakeholders, partners, and interested parties affected by transportation planning in the region. Please use this opportunity to share with us what you think can increase the public’s opportunities to be conveniently and actively involved in developing plans and to share your comments with us regarding the amended PPP. To view an electronic version of the draft PPP click here. Hard copies of the draft PPP are available for public review at Kingsport City Hall, the Kingsport Public Library, and the MTPO office (201 W Market St, Kingsport, TN). If you have any questions, comments, or would like more information please call Kingsport MTPO at (423) 224-2670 or email
