Sep 26, 2019  FHWA  FHWA Webinar: Extending Our Reach Public Involvement Tools- Story Maps and Virtual Meetings  - Public involvement tools and practices have expanded and shifted dramatically over the past decade due to changes in communications, technology, and lifestyles. As transportation professionals, we can no longer expect the public to come to us, but need to reach them in their everyday lives—online, at home, and in chosen gathering spaces. To help practitioners navigate this changing environment, FHWA is developing a series of short videos highlighting innovative and proven public involvement techniques for today’s transportation plans and projects. This is the third in a series of four webinars featuring these techniques. This webinar will feature speakers from agencies featured in videos 7-9, which cover Story Maps, Online in the Field, and Virtual Meetings.
