Movement of the People: A Study of Citizen Involvement in Transportation Planning
MetadataShow full item record
This paper begins by examining the historical contexts for a new citizen movement now beginning in the United States. This new citizen movement is then examined in the context of a case study of a public involvement program instituted by a Chicago non-profit agency, the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT). Through a series of innovative community meetings, CNT was able to build a public involvement program that challenged the status quo in transportation planning for the Chicago region and exemplified many good practices in the realm of public participation.
