The Aptakisic Road project will include opportunities for public involvement in the form of public meetings. These large-scale meetings will encourage public attendance and foster public awareness of project developments and alternatives that are being evaluated. These meetings will also provide a forum for general public input, including concerns and comments regarding project alternatives. Meetings will be held to coincide with major milestones during the project development process.
- The Public Information Meeting (November 2012) served to initate the project and educate stakeholders on the project process and study area. It also provided an opportunity for the public to share its perspective regarding transportation issues and project concerns.
- The Public Hearing will present the Preferred Alternative for public review and comment.
Stakeholder Involvement Group Meetings
LCDOT enlisted the input of the Aptakisic Road Stakeholder Involvement Group (SIG) to assist with the project. The SIG serves to provide input on various study elements including the definition of project needs, and evaluation of the potential alternatives. The SIG consists of community leaders from the study area, and stakeholders with expertise or technical interest in environmental, land use, transportation, and economic development that are affected by the study, as well as other representative stakeholders. Other individuals wishing to be considered for SIG membership will be able to do so by signing up at public meetings or via the project website. LCDOT will ultimately determine SIG membership to ensure balanced representation in an effective and manageable workshop setting. There will be approximately five of these meetings which will be scheduled to correspond with key project milestones.
