Sheboygan MPO Public Participation Plan 

In its role as Sheboygan MPO, the Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission (BLRPC) is responsible for developing transportation plans and programs for the Sheboygan metropolitan planning area. As part of its responsibilities, the MPO is charged with providing a forum for cooperative transportation planning and decision making and establishing a public involvement process that ensures opportunities for early and continuing general public involvement in the review and evaluation of transportation plans and programs in the Sheboygan metropolitan planning area.

The purpose of this plan is to inform residents of the Sheboygan metropolitan planning area, members of the MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees, and public and private transportation providers about the public participation process used during the review and approval of MPO transportation planning documents. This plan specifically outlines the procedures to be used during the development of the Sheboygan Area Transportation Plan (SATP, the long-range transportation plan for the Sheboygan metropolitan planning area), the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and other plans and studies as appropriate.

2024 Public Participation Plan 

The Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission (BLRPC) has concluded a 30-day consultation period, and following this, the Sheboygan Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Technical and Policy Advisory Committees have given their approval for a 45-day public commentary period, which was decided in their meeting on April 25, 2024. The 2024 Public Participation Plan Update aims to outline the BLRPC staff's commitment to facilitating public engagement and comprehension of transportation plans and programs for all Sheboygan metropolitan area residents, with a focus on including those who have traditionally been underrepresented in the planning process. Furthermore, the 2024 Update incorporates additional outreach efforts to specific groups as mandated by recent Federal surface transportation legislation, notably the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Act.
