On December 10, NFRMPO staff participated in a webinar for The Innovative MPO, a guidebook for planners about new and emerging ideas in planning, programming, technical analysis and community partnerships. Knowing that an increasing percent of the U.S. population is living within metropolitan areas, Transportation for America created the guide using case studies from around the country. The case studies range from small MPOs to large COGs (councils of government), from small regions to large, for a total of 100 examples from 50 MPOs. Within these case studies, T4America studied seven focus areas, including public involvement, data utilization, effective long-range transportation plans, and freight.
For more information, the guidebook can be downloaded from the Transportation for America website.
