Franklin County Metropolitan Planning Organization (FCMPO)
Who We Are
A Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is a transportation policy-making and decision-making entity made up of community members representing transportation and business interests, and local and state governments.
MPOs are mandated to implement the metropolitan transportation planning process outlined in the federal transportation regulations (23 USC 134 and 49 USC 5303). The MPO coordinates with PennDOT in planning for the transportation needs of the county.
The MPO is responsible for developing a unified planning work program, updating the transportation improvement program and preparing a long range transportation plan among other planning tasks.
