Abstract The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) believes in the importance of public outreach and communication, especially in the transportation planning and programming processes. An open exchange of information among transportation users and government officials leads to better decision-making and more publicly supported programs and projects. With increasing demands on limited public resources, transportation programs and projects need public support through open and inclusive planning processes. NDOT developed the Transportation Planning Non-Metropolitan Local Official Participation Process to document consultation with non-metropolitan local officials and Indian Tribal governments during transportation planning and programming activities, including the development of the Statewide Long- Range Transportation Plan and the Transportation System Projects. The Transportation Planning Non-Metropolitan Local Official Participation Process is separate and discrete from the Statewide Transportation Planning Public Participation Process as well as from the participation process for National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) planning.
