Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Documents Available for Public Review
The City Department of Transportation staff, on behalf of the Greensboro Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), has revised four documents to comply with federal Title XI regulatory requirements. Residents may now review and comment on the following revised plans:
- Public Participation Plan – Public review period ends August 24. A Section has been added to include Title VI of Civil Rights.
- MPO Title VI – Public review period ends August 9. This policy of the MPO is to ensure that no person shall be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination under any of our programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, limited English proficiency, sex, age, or disability, (and income, where applicable).
- Greensboro Transit Agency Title VI Update – Public review period ends August 9. This 2019 update is to verify compliance with Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its amendments, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities that receive federal funds.
- Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program Policy Statement – Public review period ends August 9. This policy is to ensure that disadvantaged business enterprises have the maximum opportunity to participate in contracts and subcontracts financed in whole or in part with federal, state, and City funds.
The documents are available at the MPO website. Paper copies are available at the offices of Greensboro City Clerk, Guilford County Commissioners, NCDOT Division 7, Greensboro Department of Transportation, Greensboro Transit Authority, Piedmont Authority of Regional Transportation, and Central Library.
The revised documents will be considered for adoption by the MPO’s Transportation Advisory Committee 2 pm, Wednesday, July 24, in the Greensboro City Council Chamber, Melvin Municipal Office Building, 330 W. Washington St.
