The Regional Planning Coordination unit implements the consultative planning and public outreach relationship statewide through the Transportation Planning Initiative (TPI). VTrans Planning Coordinators carry out the Vermont Transportation Planning Initiative (TPI) in partnership with the ten non-metropolitan Regional Planning Commissions (RPCs) of the state and the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) - Vermont's only Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The unit works with the RPCs to solicit local input, identify needs, develop regional transportation plans and prioritize regional transportation needs, and otherwise provide planning capacity to VTrans on an ongoing basis. Through the TPI the RPCs assist their member municipalities with local planning and transportation issues.
In addition, the unit plays a key role in the Agency's public outreach efforts - working collaboratively with the RPCs and other state agencies, VTrans program managers, municipalities and an array of public and private organizations to inform the public on important transportation issues, programs, projects, planning activities, and to facilitate the flow of accurate information affecting and/or involving the public.
