Federal law requires state and local governments to designate a metropolitan planning org. (MPO) in each urbanized area with a population of 50,000 or more to help plan surface transport. infrastructure and services. There are currently 381 MPOs nationwide. MPOs have generally remained subordinate to state departments of transport. (DoTs) in the planning and selecting of projects using federal surface transport. funds. Moreover, it can be argued that at the metropolitan level MPOs are subordinate to local governments that own and operate many elements of the transport. system, and also control land use planning and zoning. Contents of this report: (1) Intro.; (2) The Metropolitan Transport. Planning Process; (3) Issues for Congress: Decision-Making Authority of MPOs Relative to State DOTs; Surface Transport. Assistance Act of 2009; Other Perspectives on MPO Authority; Representation and Participation in MPOs; MPO Funding and Technical Capacity; MPOs and “Livability/Sustainability” Initiatives; Legislative Proposals; Climate Change Mitigation, Compact Cities, and Transport.; Other Issues with Transportation Planning Requirements; Long-Range Planning; Freight Transport.; and Geographic Scale.
