MRMPO is responsible for ensuring that the following core functions are carried out and meet federal guidelines:
The MTP is the region’s long-range transportation plan which determines how federal transportation dollars will be spent over a 20-plus horizon period. The MTP highlights existing transportation conditions and future growth forecasts in order to ensure that multimodal transportation investments occur where they will be needed most.
The TIP is the metropolitan area’s short-range transportation program. It lists, in detail, all transportation projects that will receive federal transportation funds over the next 6 years. The TIP is developed with the guidance of a competitive process that is carried out collaboratively among all member agencies.
The UPWP is the mechanism for listing and organizing the MRMPO’s transportation planning activities that will be undertaken over a two-year time period. The work plan is developed by MRMPO in cooperation with its member agencies.
MRMPO is committed to conducting a robust outreach process to accompany its planning activities and products. The PPP outlines the methods and techniques for outreach purposes that favors going to where people are rather than asking them to come to us, as well as increased efforts to reach underrepresented populations.
