Public Participation

The RCRPC promotes public participation in transportation planning to ensure the public’s needs and preferences are met. This participation is essential to keep a mutual understanding and trust between RCRPC and the public it seeks to serve. The public involvement plan provides direction and guidelines for seeking and processing public input.

Title VI/Non Discrimination Program 2016

The non-discrimination program’s purpose is to inform both internal actors and the public of the RCRPC’s compliance with the US Department of Transportation’s Title VI regulations. The RCRPC, along with most federal agencies, have adopted regulations that prohibit recipients of federal funds from using criteria or administration methods that subject individuals to discrimination based on race, color, or national origin. Furthermore, the US Supreme Court has held that such regulations may validly prohibit practices that have a disparate impact on protected groups, even if the actions or practices are not intentionally discriminatory.
