As a part of the Winston-Salem Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization's (MPO) efforts to meet compliance with Federal Title VI requirements, the MPO is undertaking a four-factor analysis of our transportation planning programs, projects and services and develop a Limited English Proficiency (LEP) implementation plan.
The four factors include:
- Portion of Limited English Proficiency (LEP) people affected by MPO programs and projects;
- Frequency of contact for LEP persons with MPO programs and projects;
- Recognition of the nature and importance of the program, project or service provided to the LEP population; and
- Reasonable costs in the provision of language assistance for LEP populations.
The LEP Plan will be released for public review on January 16 and complete a forty-five (45) day public review on March 3, 2014. The LEP Plan will be translated into Spanish and advertisements will be placed in both the Spanish language newspaper and on Spanish language radio stations within the MPO. All comments and responses will be presented at the March 20 TAC meeting for adoption of the LEP plan for the MPO.
