One of the goals of the Regional Transportation District's (RTD's) FasTracks program is to get the public involved in helping to shape their community as FasTracks is implemented. Participation and input from community stakeholders is a highly valued element of the FasTracks program. As a public agency, RTD understands the importance of integrating our rail systems into your cities and neighborhoods by incorporating community feedback as much as possible. Stakeholder participation, or public input, is analyzed along with other criteria such as technical, environmental and schedule feasibility and cost.
Public input, technical, environmental and schedule feasibility and cost are all weighed prior to decisions being made on a project. In order for your input to have the most impact, it is important that you provide that input at the appropriate phase of the project.
Make your input count because as the project progresses, input opportunities narrow and become more focused and the cost to implement changes greatly increases.
The best opportunity to provide input and make changes in a project is during the planning phase. As each project moves from planning to design to construction, public involvement opportunities narrow and become more defined as the budget and schedule are more impacted by changes.
