Public Participation 101

Class: Geography 365
Role: Geographical Planning
Agency: City of Bozeman
Working Group: Neighborhoods Program

Students learned about public participation efforts through the City of Bozeman and what participation means for residents impacted by growth and development. They became conversant in legal definitions of public participation related to community planning and development and where public participation is outlined in Bozeman’s Unified Development Code and Community Plan. Students then designed public facing communication pieces (e.g. fact sheets, social media cards or videos) designed to educate the public on how to produce effective verbal and written public comment on City issues.
