Various stakeholders, ranging from permitting agencies (such as the DNR and Watershed Districts) to residents, business owners and property owners living or working along or near the roadway, have an interest in the development of the roadway project. The partnering agencies recognize that these interests vary in perspective. The agencies will use information provided by the various stakeholders when making their decision on the final improvements. There are a number of activities which will occur throughout the design process that will allow for input from the various stakeholders. Agency and public involvement activities will include:
The second open house meeting is currently scheduled for Wednesday, July 11, 2012 from 5:00pm to 6:30pm at the Rogers Activity Center. The partnering agencies will be presenting the updated layouts for the preferred alternative (the Diverging Diamond Interchange) and other alternatives studied (the Tight Diamond Interchange and Single Point Urban Interchange) as well as the traffic, safety, environmental, and other information studied so far. A mailing with this information will be sent to property owners within a half-mile radius of the project site approximately two weeks before the meeting date.
