The Regional Public Participation Plan (RP3) Working Group is an ad hoc committee made up of public engagement professionals from the Metropolitan Planning Organizations of Pinellas, Pasco, Polk, Hillsborough, Hernando/Citrus, and Sarasota/Manatee Counties. The group currently meets quarterly, or as deemed necessary by TBARTA.

  • Providing region-oriented advice to the Authority on effective public engagement strategies, best practices, and performance measures/targets
