  6. 6. Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationProject development checklist Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design 1. Initiation 1. Identify project leadership team 2. Review initial project scope based on inputs from system or corridor planning and any system or programmatic EIS, context statements, core values, or other prior input as well as CSS guidelines. 3. Partner identification 4. Public involvement plan1 5. Initial stakeholder meetings1 6. Preliminary partnership building 7. Select resource agency consultation team 8. Identify multidisciplinary project staff including owner and consultants 9. Agree on project limits1 10. Clarify intended project outcomes1 11. (NEPA) Identify probable level of documentation required (EIS, FONSI, EA) and develop initial purpose and need statement 12. (NEPA) If EIS needed, publish notice of intent 13. (NEPA) Initiate agency scoping 14. (NEPA) Identify agency project teams, roles, initial membership 1 Likely stakeholder and/or public involvement; actual involvement to be determined in public involvement plan 6
  7. 7. Context Sensitive Solutions in TransportationProject development checklist Planning, Environmental Analysis and Design 2. Vision and work plan 1. Develop and sign memorandum of understanding with project partners 2. Review team roles and responsibilities 3. Stakeholder, public meetings to establish vision1 4.
