The 2008 Rural Local Officials Consultation Assessment Guide (view the PDF guideor accompanying presentation as a PowerPoint fileor PDF) is intended to provide rural local elected and appointed officials, along with their regional planning organizations, with a framework for appraising the effectiveness, timeliness and results of their involvement and input into the statewide transportation planning and decision-making processes within their respective states. Although certain aspects of the planning process have changed since MAP-21 was passed in 2012, this guide remains a useful resource for localities or regions seeking to work more closely with their state DOTs on statewide planning and project identification.
