Planning ArtworkThe Kingsport MPO makes public participation and communication a priority to ensure transportation improvements meet the needs of its users and all interested parties.  The awareness and involvement of interested persons in governmental processes are critical to successful transportation planning and programming.  The Public Participation Plan (PPP) is an adopted document of the Kingsport MPO that serves as a guide for public involvement among its stakeholders to ensure the ongoing opportunity for broad based participation in the development and review of regional transportation plans and programs. The purpose of the plan is to ensure broad public participation during thedevelopment, review, and refinement of regional transportation plans and programs.  The Kingsport MPO has recently updated its PPP.  This plan was developed in coordination with all federal and state regulations according to provisions pertaining to the SAFETEA-LU transportation planning process.
