Plans and Programs
Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are responsible for several plans and programs per federal and state regulations. Each plan or program serves a specific purpose and guides the MPO’s transportation planning activities. Federally required plans and programs include:
- A long-range Regional Transportation Plan
- An annual Unified Planning Work Program
- A bi-annual 4-year Transportation Improvement Program
- An annual list of obligated projects
- A Public Participation Plan
- A Title VI / Non-discrimination Plan
More information about AAMPO’s individual plans and programs is available below.
The Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is a long-term blueprint for the MPO’s regional transportation system. The RTP builds upon local transportation system plans and addresses regional transportation needs over a 20-year period. The RTP includes policies and goals which, along with a travel demand model and local input, help to prioritize transportation investments over 20-year period.
The AAMPO is developing an RTP which will outline transportation improvements for the greater Albany area over the next 20 years. Learn more about the project on the Albany Area Regional Transportation Plan website.
On March 23, 2016, the AAMPO Policy Board adopted a Regional Transportation Plan Framework. This document identifies goals and priorities for the regional transportation system and a constrained project list through 2040. Adoption of this document followed a proactive public engagement process and completes the first phase of developing the MPO’s first Regional Transportation Plan.
The MPO will continue to work over the next year to refine the MPO’s goals, priorities, identified needs, and projects to be prioritized for funding over the planning horizon. The second phase of the process will include development of an unconstrained project list, consideration of different development scenarios, fulfillment of Oregon Transportation Planning Rule requirements, and development of an Albany Area Transit Development Plan.
The AAMPO Title VI/ Non-Discrimination Plan was adopted on August 27, 2014 following a 45-day public comment period. The Title VI Plan and complaint procedure are available on the AAMPO Title VI Program Page.
