The 2045 MTP lists all the highway, transit, and non-automobile transportation projects that the MPO plans to fund in the future. The 2045 MTP is to be developed from January 2016 through June 2017 and in partnership with the Triangle J Council of Government (TJCOG) and the Capital Area MPO (CAMPO).
On January 13, 2016, the MPO staff facilitated a workshop for the elected officials that serve on the MPO Board. The purpose of the workshop was to review, discuss, provide input, and revise the draft Goals, Objectives, and Performance Measures that will initially serve to guide the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) planning process. The 2045 MTP will guide the long-term planning, prioritization, and development of the transportation systems in the DCHC MPO and the CAMPO regions. The workshop was a successful event with MPO Board members providing input to MPO staff at four different workshop stations.
The first step in planning for the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan is to create a set of Goals and Objectives. It is important to understand that this document will drive the MPO’s policies and project decision-making process in the future. In addition, the MPO attaches performance measures to the Goals and Objectives that will help the MPO Board and the pubic assess the extent to which the region’s transportation system is meeting the Goals and Objectives.
This Webpage presents the process for developing the Goals, Objectives and Performance Measures. At this point, the public input process has ended but the MPO has not yet adopted the final document because development of the Performance Measures continues.
The MPO requested that the public review the draft Goals, Objectives and Performance Measures and provide feedback to the MPO. This public comment period was from Friday, February 12, 2016 through Friday, April 1, 2016. There are several options for participating, including:
