The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) is the 25-year document that outlines the state of current transportation, projects future needs, and offers projects and other methods for keeping the people and freight in the KTMPO region moving efficiently. The MTP encompasses all aspects of transportation planning as well as transportation projects within the KTMPO region. Each local entity submits projects within their jurisdiction for possible inclusion into the MTP, and the Transportation Planning Policy Board (TPPB) prioritizes these projects based on the needs of the region. This plan is required to be updated every five years. The Mobility 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan can be viewed or downloaded below. Effective date: 15 May 2019.
The Public Participation Plan (PPP) sets policy and provides guidance for including the public in the planning process. It is intended to include everyone who uses the transportation infrastructure within the KTMPO area: minorities, elderly, disabled, and low to moderate-income groups; bus, rail and taxi companies as well as their passengers; freight shippers; and any private citizen or agency representatives. The PPP supports early and continuing involvement of the public in developing transportation plans for the region.
KTMPO’s public involvement plan aims to ensure equality among all citizens. Our goals are to assure for all Americans safe, healthful, productive, and aesthetically and culturally pleasing surroundings; to attain the widest range of beneficial uses of the environment without degradation, risk to health or safety, or other undesirable and unintended consequences; and to achieve a balance between population and resource use which will permit high standards of living and a wide sharing of life’s amenities. Together, these goals support a program of Environmental Justice.
The updated PPP was approved by Policy Board on March 14, 2018.
