Assessing the Effectiveness of Project-Based Public Involvement Processes: A Self-Assessment Tool for Practitioners
This 17-page document from the Transportation Research Board, Committee on Public Involvement in Transportation (1999) is an adaptable and practical guide which produces output in a ‘scorecard’ format. It is intended to provide the practitioner with a means of conducting a self-assessment of the effectiveness of a specific public involvement campaign for a specific planning or project development activity (e.g., the development of a long range plan or a specific capital improvement). It is not intended to evaluate the overall public involvement processes or procedures guiding all public involvement activities such as a State department of transportation or Metropolitan Planning Organization would develop under ISTEA regulations.
