1 How to Streamline the Public Participation Process José Luis Cáceres SACOG (916) Anne Jensen SCRTPA (530) s

2 The Current PPP Process Maximizing efficiency Meeting requirements without excess procedure

3 Identifying where the PPP can be streamlined Shortening amendment time Appropriate length of public review period

4 SACOG’s Example Public review period can often be as little as 7 days SACOG model separates amendments into 5 types

5 Type 1: Administrative Modification No public review period required Requires only manager approval

6 Type 2: Formal Amendment due to Funding Changes Funding change is greater than allowed per Caltrans’ administrative procedures. Public review period required is 7 days Requires manager approval only

7 Type 3: Formal Amendments of Exempt Projects Amendment of an exempt or non- capacity increasing project e.g., add/delete exempt or non- regionally significant project or project phases to/from the FTIP. Public review period is 7 days Requires manager approval only

8 Type 4: Formal Amendment requiring a conformity determination These amendments require conformity determination but rely on a previous Regional Emissions Analysis Public review period is 7 days Public hearing is required Require Board approval

9 Type 5: Formal Amendment requiring a conformity determination and new Regional Emissions Analysis Public review period is 30 days Requires a public hearing Requires Board approval

10 Interagency Consultation Circulate preliminary draft Federal and state agencies Keep in touch with stakeholders

11 Implementing Change Amend your PPP (following public outreach requirements) Decide on a spectrum of options with varying public review Delegate approval as much as possible Decide what works best for your region Take advantage of Grouped Project Listings
