Public Involvement Training Implementation

The Texas Department of Transportation's (TxDOT's) Office of Public Involvement recently implemented a public involvement policy and wishes to provide training to TxDOT staff, including district Public Information Officers, to improve its liaisons with the public by offering public involvement training workshops to staff. At the workshops, TxDOT staff will learn the agency's public involvement policy statement, the importance of good public involvement, how to identify stakeholders, and effective communication techniques when engaging the public. Previous work completed in Project Number 0-6662 and Project Number 5-6662-01, created a public involvement policy and performed initial planning for public involvement training. This project completes curriculum development and provides course training workshops to TxDOT staff.
