Public Involvement

Public participation is the key element in developing the Regional and Statewide transportation plans and other planning products. Active stakeholder participation provides the opportunity for citizens to gain a fundamental understanding of regional and statewide transportation planning and to participate in development of long-range transportation plans and ultimate decisions guiding the development of transportation systems in Colorado.

If you are interested in participating in transportation planning activities, please add your name to our mailing list by emailing Aaron Willis at [email protected].  In the email, please provide us your name, e-mail address and mailing address. Or contact Aaron via phone at: 303-512-4019.

Non‐Metropolitan Local Officials Consultation Process

In accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations under section Title 23 §450.210(b), CDOT has developed a documented process for consulting with non‐metropolitan local officials representing units of general-purpose local government and/or local officials with responsibility for transportation.  This process is a separate public involvement process that allows local officials the opportunity to fully participate in the development of the long-range statewide transportation plan and Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The Non-Metropolitan Local Officials Consultation Process Guide was available for public review and comment from February 8, 2021 to April 9, 2021. The newest version of the document, updated after a robust public engagement process, is available here:
