710 Tunnel Technical Study Information
COMMUNITY EDUCATION & OUTREACH
The Community Education and Outreach Program will provide reliable, up-to-date information about tunneling and the use of tunnel technology to close the SR-710 gap. The program is adaptable to meet the community’s participation needs as the study progresses.
Program Goals and Participation
The goals of the Community Education and Outreach Program are to:
- Inform the community about the study process and schedule
- Facilitate the community’s involvement in the study
- Distinguish this effort as a geotechnical study; not a project or environmental process
- Describe the roles of the project sponsors and why they are conducting the study
- Create community tunnel experts
Community members can stay informed and participate during the study through:
- Quarterly Updates
- Community Events
- Community Meetings/Workshops
- Quarterly Newsletter
- Focus Groups
How It All Works: The Community's Input in All Study Phases
Throughout the study phases, all communities will be informed and involved. Study information and the community’s input flows continuously through feedback loops to help identify community values and to answer questions and determine opportunities and constraints. Informational materials, focus groups, workshops and presentations provide a forum for education, sharing of opinions or issues to be addressed by the experts. The study’s public process is about people becoming informed and educated about tunneling and tunnel technology as a possible means to close the SR-710 gap.
