Santa Fe MPO, New Mexico

Transportation Policy Board

The next Policy Board Meeting is scheduled for:

Thursday June 26th, 2014 @ 4:30PM at the City of Santa Fe Offices at Market Station.

Past – Agendas and Minutes 

Currently, the MPO is composed of four member governments: the City of Santa Fe, Santa Fe County, Tesuque Pueblo, and the New Mexico Department of Transportation.  As a multi-jurisdictional entity, the MPO addresses transportation systems and improvements as it relates to growth management and land use planning issues within the MPO Planning Area. Traffic and transportation system problems often cross jurisdictional boundaries; therefore, the need exists for intergovernmental cooperation in the process.  Also, the planning process should become integrated with existing individual government processes, and should have established policies and plans that ensure proper coordination among agencies and stakeholders. Representatives from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) are non-voting members and participate in an advisory capacity.

 

The primary duties of the Transportation Policy Board are:

 

    1.   To serve as a multi-jurisdictional transportation planning forum for cooperative decision making on planning, funding, and implementation of transportation infrastructure, programs, and related matters;

    2.   To provide general policy guidance and direction to the MPO Staff and the Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC);

    3.   To receive and act upon recommendations made by the MPO Staff and Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC);

    4.   To review and take action on all MPO planning work products such as the Public Participation Plan (PPP), Unified Planning Work Plan (UPWP), Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), Transportation Improvement Program (TIP),Area Studies/Corridor Plans and proposed amendments to adopted plans and programs;

   5.    To receive and consider public input; and

   6.    To determine boundaries of the planning area.
