All hearings are jointly sponsored by the Council on Transportation and the Delaware Department of Transportation.
The hearings provide an opportunity to review current and suggested transportation projects. The hearings also include capital investments for DART First State public transit and will be used to satisfy the public involvement requirements of Federal Transit Administration Section 5307.
The public hearings will be held in an open house format with a Court Reporter available to take public comments. Interested persons are also encouraged to submit written comments during the public hearing process.
The MPO's are comprised of representatives from state, county, and local governments, and citizen and technical representatives. Mandated by 29 Delaware Code, S8409, the hearings are designed to ensure that the public has ample opportunity to participate in the planning process. The Council on Transportation is composed of citizen representatives from each county in the state. Members are appointed by the Governor.
