GREENSBORO, NC (July 11, 2019) – The City Department of Transportation staff, on behalf of the Greensboro Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), has revised four documents to comply with federal Title XI regulatory requirements. Residents may now review and comment on the following revised plans:

n Public Participation Plan – Public review period ends August 24. A Section has been added to include Title VI of Civil Rights.

n MPO Title VI – Public review period ends August 9.

n Greensboro Transit Agency Title VI Update – Public review period ends August 9.
