A Step at a Time

The project had three phases before the plan was adopted by County Commissioners in January 2020. At each phase, public input was considered.  Social media, email, press releases, and website updates kept the public informed during each phase. Each phase included public open houses, online open houses, meetings with community groups, and updates via email or social media.

Phase 1, March - April 2018: Community Values

Learn how the County decides what road projects to add, and say whether you agree. Say what road changes or new features you want, and which are most important.

Public Involvement

  • Public Open Houses
  • Online Open House
  • Meetings with Community Groups

Results

  • The County will draft, then adjust what it measures and scores in considering road changes.
  • The County will draft a list of road changes to consider.

Phase 2, February 2019: Project List

Find out what the County learned from Phase 1 outreach and how we are gathering data for the next round - e.g. using LIDAR mapping technology to scan all County roads.

Public Involvement

  • In-person open houses
  • Online open houses
  • Email and social media

Results

  • The County will measure and score items on its list of what to add or change on roads.

Phase 3, October 2019 - January 2020: Final Proposed Road Capital Improvement Plan (RCIP) Report

Find out which projects ended up on the final RCIP list, how they were weighted, and estimates of funding and project costs.

Public Involvement

  • Public Open House
  • Online Open House
  • Meetings with Community Groups
  • Email and social media
Results
  • The County finalized the list and ensured there are no "red flags" in the RCIP report before the Board of County Commissioners voted to approve the plan in January 2020.
