The Florida Department of Transportation has a long-standing commitment to identifying our stakeholders and giving them multiple opportunities to be involved in our transportation delivery process, regardless of phase. We recognize that there is not a cookie-cutter approach to community engagement activities; rather that all of our efforts to engage the public should be flexible and updated as a project or plan progresses, should be scaled to match the magnitude or complexity of the project or plan, and should strive to use the most appropriate tools for each audience.
With a strong commitment to delivering responsive transportation solutions informed by residents, community leaders, and other stakeholders, we are thinking outside the box.
The Department's Community Engagement Guidance requires all public meetings, hearings, and workshops to be hybrid, using both face-to-face and interactive/virtual components.
