Community Advisory Committee

A Community Advisory Committee (CAC) has been formed to serve as a conduit for the dissemination of project information, to gather key local information, and to assist with the decision-making process. CAC meetings will be held at three key milestones: project kickoff; pre-hearing; and pre-Stage 2 design. Committee members will consist of key stakeholders representing the following groups and organizations.

Kitchen Table Meetings

Individual property owner meetings were held during the first quarter of 2022. The meetings were held at property owner homes or their preferred location. Information was shared on the project development process and schedule. Project representatives also gathered additional information to refine preliminary alternatives. This established a direct point of contact with the project team that will remain throughout the delivery of the project. Some meetings were held virtually as well.

PUblic Hearings

A public hearing will be held during the environmental studies process which will afford the opportunity for the public to provide formal comments on the project. The hearing will be conducted according to INDOT/FHWA guidelines. It will include an open house element, stations for communications with project team members, a formal presentation, and the formal hearing component. A virtual option will be available to the public.
