The New Virtual Reality for Public Meetings and Social Distancing
March 23, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
Public involvement is an important and necessary step in informing transportation decisions. But the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has dramatically altered how the public can make their opinions known. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 from 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern that will address how states can encourage virtual public involvement, including NEPA required hearings. Presenters will provide practices for getting started with virtual outreach and continuing to do so beyond the social distancing requirements. They will discuss the Virtual Public Involvement (VPI) program.
