You have the right to be treated fairly in the transportation planning process. Federal law prohibits discrimination. This law is part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It is called Title Six or Title VI. The Bend MPO is committed to ensuring that the work we do is fair and meets the requirements of Title VI.
TITLE VI AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE PLAN
The scope of this program is to ensure that transportation programs and services are accessible and provided uniformly, and to avoid adverse and disproportionate impacts by considering the populations impacted by transportation projects. This is primarily accomplished through inclusive public participation, outreach, and the consideration of all factors and measures that provide for a context sensitive solution.
