TPO 2040 Regional Mobility Plan Survey
1. About Us
The Regional Mobility Plan is the most significant project the The Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) undertakes. In short, it lays out the vision for transportation in our region for the next 25-30 years. All transportation projects that may receive federal funding must first be in this Plan and based on funds we can expect to be available. When people travel from place to place every day, they rarely consider community boundaries. By looking at the region, the Mobility Plan simply encourages local governments to think the same way.
The Knoxville Regional TPO, established in 1977, is the federally designated TPO for the Knoxville Metropolitan Area. The TPO area includes Knox County and the urbanized portion of Anderson, Blount, Loudon, and Sevier Counties. Federal law requires a TPO in all urbanized areas with a population over 50,000. The purpose is to ensure that a continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative (3-C) planning process is the basis for all transportation investments.
This survey will be open through November 9, 2012.
