This report presents findings of a comprehensive assessment of current public involvement practices and processes in Florida. MPO current public involvement practices were assessed using a survey instrument, whereas data on public involvement practices of FDOT were collected through personal on-site interviews with individuals across the various functional units. The assessment considers public involvement practices at all phases of transportation decision making and includes practices of FDOT Central Office, FDOT Districts, and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs). The report addresses the variety of public involvement practices in the state, identifies best practices and continuing challenges, and distinguishes training needs for FDOT functional units and MPOs. The research also provides a baseline and suggestions for the future development of public involvement performance measures for the Florida Department of Transportation.
