The Policy Board is the decision-making body of the MPO. The Board is made up of elected and appointed officials from member local governments and major organizations.
The Policy Board is responsible for preparing and approving the areas Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), the area's Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and the MPO's Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP).
The MTP plans for transportation infrastructure improvements 20 to 25 years in advance. The MTP include the improvements needed to the area's roadway network, public transportation infrastructure, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The TIP is the funding schedule for implementing transportation improvements in the area. If Federal Funds are to be used for a project they must approved by the Policy Board and be included in the MPO's MTP and TIP. The UPWP is the work program for MPO Staff. Work included in the UPWP is funded by Federal, State, and local funds.
