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:
Commissioner Anna Hansen – Santa Fe County
Commissioner Hank Hughes – Santa Fe County
Alan Webber – Mayor (Alternate Councilor Amanda Chavez – City of Santa Fe)
Councilor Renee Villarreal– City of Santa Fe
Councilor Jamie Cassutt – City of Santa Fe – Chair
Commissioner Justin S. Greene – Santa Fe County – Vice Chair
Governor Earl Samuel – Tesuque Pueblo
Paul Brasher – New Mexico DOT

After mapping, projects can be prioritized for funding and implementation. The highest priority projects will be accessible for review with member governments so they can be included into the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). . Based on concentrations of high priority projects, high priority pedestrian improvement zones can be designated to complete improvements by geographic area.
