Telephone Town Hall Meeting (icon)

February 20, 2013 Telephone Town Hall Meeting

Over the past ten years, CDOT and FHWA have made huge efforts to provide meaningful public involvement opportunities on this project. In an effort to develop new ways to reach out to communities and citizens concerned about the project, the team used a new method of telephone technology to reach out to the larger community. The I-70 East EIS project team called more than 38,000 residents in the project corridor and invited them to join an hour-long telephone town hall (in both Spanish and English) from 7-8 pm on February 20, 2013. Those who joined the sessionsmore than 2,600—heard a presentation on the project and the alternatives under consideration. In addition, they were given the opportunity to ask questions from the project team members and leave voicemails to be contacted later.
