This report discusses the design, implementation and management of public involvement programs as integral parts of the Corps of Engineers water resources planning process. The approach to program development suggested relies on several key concepts first that planning should be viewed as consisting of several sequential stages, each of which has a definable output second, that public involvement programs can and should be approached on a stage-by-stage basis third, that there should be public checkpoints at the end of each stage to provide input as to the adequacy and responsiveness of the planning to date fourth, that these public checkpoints are not in themselves adequate and fifth, that decision-making responsive to public concerns requires the explicit consideration of public input before key decisions are made at each stage.
