The Collier MPO places a high value on public involvement. The MPO’s public involvement program is designed to ensure opportunities for the public to express their views on transportation and mobility issues and to become active participants in the transportation decision-making process. The MPO provides multiple ways for the public to become involved including: electronic, telephone, postal mail and by visiting the MPO office. The public involvement process used by the MPO is described in our Public Participation Plan.
Below are ways that you can become actively involved in the MPO’s transportation planning process:

JOIN THE ADVISOR NETWORK
The MPO established the Advisor Network in 2018 to serve as an additional mechanism for citizen involvement with the objective of increasing participation by local residents. This network is for individuals who wish to comment on MPO actions of specific interest to them; who may not have the time to participate on a standing committee; or who have expressed an interest in remaining informed of MPO activities.
Members of the Advisor Network have several options for participating in the MPO planning process, varying from interaction through social media, responding to surveys, community meetings and forums, submitting comments, and viewing of videos. Member will be notified of all MPO events. Members are encouraged to participate on an as-desired basis as time allows and their interest dictates.
Please click here to sign-up for the Advisor Network. For more information, contact MPO Executive Director Anne McLaughlin at 239-252-5884
