Public Comment Report

Amendments #13 and #14 to the FY 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission

July 2, 2018


Amendments #13 and #14 of the 2018-2021 Transportation Improvement Program were released for a 30-day public comment period which began on June 1, 2018 and ended July 1, 2018. The amendments were made available at www.nirpc.org. One comment was received.

The comment and staff response follow.


Comment Received

Manner Considered by Staff

Significant?

Need to Modify?

If it is planned to leave big potholes in residential roads like Forest Dr. Then classes should be held to teach us how to fix our own streets.

A reply email was sent out asking for further clarification. No response was returned.

No

No


The projects that were part of Amendments #13 were already part of the Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP). Per the NIRPC Public Participation Plan (PPP) an amendment must undergo a 7-day (for minor amendments) or a 30-day (for major amendments) comment period. NIRPC decided to put this project on a 30-day comment period to match Amendment #14 (for INDOT projects being added to the TIP). This comment period lasted from June 1 to July 1, 2018. No public meeting is required for these amendments.

These amendments were created with the input of both the Lake - Porter and the LaPorte Transportation Resources Oversight Committee (TROC). The membership of these committees consists of representatives of the local public agencies (LPAs) that are located within the Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties urbanized areas. As outlined in the NIRPC committee structure, this is the first step in the approval of an amendment. Following the TROC meeting, the amendment and any comments received are presented to the Technical Planning Committee (TPC) for a vote on whether or not to recommend adoption of the amendment to the NIRPC Commission. The NIRPC Commission is provided with the amendment and any comments received are provided to the Commission as part of the agenda packet. The Executive Board (or Commission, if it is a full commission meeting) then votes on whether or not to adopt the amendment.

NIRPC always appreciates constructive suggestions in how it can continue to improve its outreach activities. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Hopefully the above information helps to shed light on the process of creating and approving TIP amendments. This comment and any others received will be provided in a public comment report to the TPC as well as the NIRPC Commission prior to any action by those bodies. This comment report will also be made publicly available on our website at www.nirpc.org.
