Delaware River Port Authority, Glassboro-Camden Line Environmental Impact Statement

Project Overview

The Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO), a subsidiary of The Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA), evaluated the need and potential for expanded rapid transit service to Gloucester, Camden, Cumberland and portions of Atlantic and Salem Counties via and Alternatives Analysis Study that was completed in the fall of 2009. This is a continuation of a previous feasibility study completed in 2005 which strongly endorsed pursuing increased rail transit options in this corridor to address transportation and mobility needs. Presently, the study has advanced into the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) phase that began in early 2010. The purpose of this project is to improve transit service along the Glassboro to Camden corridor in Southern New Jersey with a focus on increasing mobility and improving links between the established communities and activity centers.

Envision provided public involvement services. Envision was responsible for the development of a comprehensive Public Involvement Plan that met the guidelines set forth by NEPA, FTA, and DRPA. Envision developed a brand positioning strategy for the EIS and worked closely with the project study team in creating all scoping material content utilized for print, electronic updates, and the project website. Envision was in charge of development and management of the project website. Also responsible for support of all project team meetings, coordination of media strategies with the DRPA Team, oversight of the outreach program, maintained and updated comprehensive databases, coordinated all public and agency scoping meetings, created and managed database for all scoping comments received electronically and hard copy, and overall project inquiry process and responses.
