The Farmington MPO contracted with Sites Southwest to undertake an extensive public outreach effort as part of the process to update its 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).
Sites partnered with consultants who specialize in interactive mapping and transportation issues. They worked together to find out what transportation network issues mattered most to citizens and the top needs they wanted addressed in the future. Through a series of evening public meetings held around the county, hour-long stakeholder meetings, a computer/paper survey and an on-line mapping exercise (Mapita) the team received input from nearly 500 people in the region.
The summary report and maps guide the MPO in establishing policies and priorities for the future.
