Public Input Opportunities

Have we heard from you? Citizen, local government and private sector input impacts decisions about transportation and air quality policies, programs and plans for North Texas. After all, these decisions determine how North Texans live and travel in the 12-county Dallas-Fort Worth area.

To facilitate an open, inclusive process, NCTCOG offers opportunities for North Texans to get informed, involved:

  • Sign up to receive notices of public input opportunities, newsletters and topic-specific information by e-mail or mail.

  • Connect on social media

Presentation Topics

Cotton Belt Regional Passenger Rail Update
Transit recommendations from the Mobility 2035 transportation plan for the North Central Texas region included regional rail service from southwest Fort Worth to Plano. NCTCOG staff will provide background information on the Cotton Belt passenger rail project that will extend from the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport to Plano as well as an overview of the innovative financing process essential to the delivery of the project.

Other Information to Be Highlighted:

Regional Smoking Vehicle Program (RSVP) Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary
To help improve air quality in our region, the RSVP has allowed North Central Texans to anonymously report vehicle emitting visible smoke and pollution since 2007. We provide educational material and information on possible financial assistance to repair and replace the vehicle. Learn more at www.smokingvehicle.net.


 

About the Metropolitan Planning Organization and Public Involvement

As the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the NCTCOG Transportation Department and Regional Transportation Council are together responsible for developing, coordinating and allocating funding to transportation plans and related air quality projects.
What is the MPO?

NCTCOG invites and encourages all North Texans, including those traditionally underserved by transportation, to share ideas and opinions. The Public Participation Plan [PDF] details more about how groups and individuals can be involved. Additionally, NCTCOG proactively seeks to educate and engage North Texans in the transportation planning process. It is expected that by 2035, nine million people will call North Texas home. Meeting the mobility needs of today and tomorrow requires coordination and collaboration.
