Why get involved?

Our goal is to have significant and ongoing public involvement in the transportation planning process. We encourage you to voice your ideas and opinions about specific actions or transportation issues at any time. A period for public comment is provided for the updates and major amendments to all of the primary transportation-planning projects for which Ozarks Transportation Organization is responsible. All comments received are documented and reviewed by staff, and responses are drafted for consideration by the appropriate committee.

Some example comments/questions to voice are:

  • What questions or concerns do you have about any of the projects proposed?
  • What information can you share in support of any of the projects?
  • What information do you have that may impact the scope, cost or schedule of any of these projects?
  • What other comments or questions do you have?

OTO believes citizen participation is key
to developing a sound and efficient transportation network that includes timely road, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian improvements to meet the diverse needs of your metropolitan area.

  • What are your concerns?
  • What improvements would you like to see?
  • How can things change to be more efficient?

What do we do with your input?
All comments, opinions, or suggestions are presented to our Board of Directors to consider before they make any final decisions. Any funding cannot move forward without the OTO Board of Director’s approval.
