In the spring of 2016, cities, counties and other agencies submitted projects for inclusion in the Mobility Pan 2040. The public was asked for input on the proposed projects during the summer of 2016.
This first round of comments were shared with the project sponsors, TPO Technical Committee and TPO Executive Board. Projects were prioritized based on the:
- Selection criteria adopted by the Executive Board
- Public comments
- Input from the TPO Technical Committee
- Availability of local resources to complete projects
In some cases, due to funding limits, projects were not recommended for inclusion on the list. The availability of required local matching funding and staff capacity to oversee the projects are key criteria when considering projects for funding. The prioritized project list and interactive map available for public to review is a result of this process.
