Community Engagement Plan

Learn about our community engagement plan, which includes our policy for engagement, shares guidance for practitioners, and lets community members know what to expect.

The Community Engagement Plan, 2016 (PDF 1.4MB) is consistent with strategic direction from the Governor, USDOT, agency leadership, stakeholders and community members.

In collaboration with the Washington State Environment Justice Council, we will continue to review and update our plan for compliance with the HEAL Act and expect to publish an update in the near future.
