Office of Policy Planning
Federal law and rules require each state to have a documented process for consulting with
non-metropolitan local officials during development of the long range statewide transportation plan
(i.e. Florida Transportation Plan) and the statewide transportation improvement program (i.e. Work
Program). In addition, at least once every five years states must review and solicit comments regarding
the effectiveness of the consultation process and any proposed changes.
After first documenting our process in 1999, the department sought input on the process from our various partners and updated Florida's process document in 2004 and again in 2009. For the 2014 update, we have revised the document to reflect changes in federal law and our current practices for cooperation and consultation with non-metropolitan officials during the development of statewide plans and the department's Work Program.
