A Little About the Frontier Metropolitan Planning Organization (FMPO)

Transportation planning is a cooperative process designed to encourage involvement by all users of the system, such as the business community, community groups, pedestrian & bicycle advocates, environmental organizations, the traveling public, freight operators, and the general public, through a public participation process conducted by the FMPO.

Agenda packets for the Frontier Metropolitan Planning Organization (FMPO) Policy Board and Technical Committee meetings can be found on the MEETINGS & EVENTS tab. All meetings are open to the public. We encourage participation especially during our long-range plan update which is currently underway. The long-range plan, or Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) (23 CFR 450.322), is our 20-year fiscally constrained multi-modal transportation plan for the metropolitan planning area (MPA).
