Proposed Public Participation Program Amendments
SRPEDD Announces a 45-day Public Comment Period for an Amendment to the Public Participation Program (PPP)Please click here for the Proposed Public Participation Program AmendmentsJanuary 18, 2017 -- The SMMPO is proposing an amendment to the PPP to change all 30-day public comment periods to 21-day public comment periods. Public comment periods are used to garner feedback for transportation planning programs such as the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and for proposed projects, or changes to programs or services. The only program that will still require an extended comment period is the PPP itself, which requires a 45-day public comment period. This will remain unchanged.The amended document will become final on March 21, 2017 once approved by the SMMPO. We are actively seeking and welcome comments and feedback from any and all interested parties on this amendment and on any transportation related concerns. The amended document can be found on SRPEDD’s website at www.srpedd.org for review.Comments may be offered by these methods:

SRPEDD Announces a 30-day Public Comment Period and Public Meeting for Amendments to the FFY2017 UPWP
The FFY2017 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) has been amended and these amendments have been released for a 30-day public comment period. A public meeting to hear comments and concerns on these amendments will be held at SRPEDD, located at 88 Broadway, Taunton, MA on Wednesday, October 5 at 4 PM.
The first amendment is the addition of a study of the Route 1 Corridor in Attleboro and North Attleborough over concerns of growing traffic congestion along this corridor. The work to be completed in the FFY2017 UPWP includes an analysis of the Route 1 Corridor under its existing conditions with the remaining effort (future development potential and analysis) to be completed in the FFY2018 UPWP.
The second amendment is the addition of a special project called SHRP2 PlanWorks. This project will allow SRPEDD to use a set of tools, under FHWA guidance, to conduct a systematic and comprehensive evaluation of our existing Evaluation Criteria (EC) within the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). This will allow an update and streamline of the process by which TIP projects are prioritized and selected.
The UPWP identifies the annual planning activities that are to be undertaken in the region from October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017 in support of the goals, objectives and performance targets established in the long-range Regional Transportation Plan.
