In 2013, ODOT initiated the Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RTPO) pilot program to assist multi-county rural regional planning organizations in developing transportation plans and overall transportation planning expertise amongst RTPO staff. Since then six agencies have officially been designated as RTPOs by the Governor.
MVRPC is excited to be a new participant in the RTPO pilot program working with its rural members in Darke, Preble, and Shelby Counties to advance transportation planning and partnerships that will benefit both ODOT and the member governments of the RTPO.
The first step towards achieving official RTPO designation is the development of a Regional Transportation Plan. For details on the process, see the scope document for SFY 2022-2023. The development of the Regional Transportation Plan will proceed along the timeline dipicted below.
