Structured Public Involvement (SPI) is a method that solicits public input to provide relevant information for solving complex community-based planning and design problems. Visualization tools, high-tech feedback and sophisticated data analysis deliver content for project decision making. By implementing SPI, productivity and quality of public meetings are drastically improved.
SPI delivers high citizen satisfaction, answers questions successfully, and accommodates a large number of participants. Information collected from each participant is anonymous, which provides a democratic setting for honest dialogue. KTC researchers provide data that improves plans and designs so that transportation infrastructure remains effective and efficient, benefiting citizens and public agencies.
