One of the best ways to influence how our region will grow over the next 5, 10, or 20 years is to be involved! There are a number of ways you can get involved on a regional level, as well as locally. Here are some options to let you started:
- Speak Out! - Do you have a great idea? Want to let local elected officials know what you think? Here’s your chance to participate!
- Attend Meetings – There’s no "I" in plan! It can only be done when we all work together to identify what we want our region to be like in the future. Going to meetings is a great way to learn more, share your ideas, and meet other people who are interested in the same issues. Attend a meeting of the BRTB Public Advisory Committee or one of the other BRTB Committees.
- Read the BRTB's Public Participation Plan– The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) is committed to meaningful public participation in the regional transportation planning process. Find out how.
- Connect Locally – While the Baltimore Metropolitan Council and the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board play a role in determining which projects are funded, many other organizations are involved in the decision making process. Many decisions about which projects are included in regional plans come from community input and participation. By getting involved locally, you help shape priorities and affect future funding decisions. Most importantly, the information you share with local leaders helps to ensure that investments reflect local and regional priorities. Contact your local planning office to find out how to be involved or follow B'More Involved on Facebook and Twitter to get updates about local planning efforts.
We are all affected by transportation and we all have a hand in how it will work in the future. By getting involved, you help shape that future.
