To provide a unified approach to public involvement and context sensitive solutions, a Context Sensitive Public Involvement Plan (CSPIP) has been prepared for the St. Francis/St. Michaels Interchange Study (Study) (PDF). The CSPIP combines the public involvement and context sensitive solutions planning conducted in accordance with the NMDOT’s Location Study Procedures (2015)– the policy document followed by the NMDOT to comply with federal transportation planning and environmental regulations. The goals of the CSPIP are:
- To establish the Study context and identify major community values;
- To identify the Study stakeholders, the methods to inform and involve them, and the approaches to resolve issues, concerns, and conflicts that may arise; and
- To develop a decision-making process that is sensitive to the Study context, involves stakeholders in a meaningful way, and leads to the development of a preferred alternative that is consistent with the transportation, environmental, cultural, community, land use, and economic contexts of the Study area.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Study will primarily use a virtual public involvement process to provide information and obtain input. To learn about the Study findings and supporting documentation, we ask that you watch the narrated presentation and explore the information on the website.
- May 18, 2021, from 6:00 to 8:30 PM.
- Register for the meeting at bit.ly/stfran-stmike-zoom
During the Live Virtual Meeting, the presentation will be given; you will have an opportunity to ask
questions or provide comments via Zoom, phone, or email; and study team members will be available to
respond to questions and comments. If you do not have access to the internet or require special
accommodations, please use the contact information below and a member of the project team will
provide resources to help you participate. Additional information on the Study is also available on the
