Building on the range of new ideas for metropolitan planning organizations outlined in our Innovative MPO Guidebook, join us on September 30, 2015, at 3 p.m. EDT for the fourth webinar in our series as we address a common complaint from both metropolitan planning organization (MPO) staff and citizen activists: how to best engage one another to shape the regional planning process.

In next week’s webinar, we will offer examples of reliable and cost-effective options to interact with the public, including a preview of a new resource we’re producing on an approach known as “creative placemaking” which will be released this Fall.
