What is an MPO?
An MPO, or Metropolitan Planning Organization, is a federally required transportation policy-making organization for any region that has a population of 50,000 or larger. It is composed of individuals charged with overseeing the distribution of federal and state transportation dollars within a defined area. In addition to overseeing the allocation of these funds, the organization is responsible for planning current and future transportation improvements, as well as providing an avenue for public input and representation. The Victoria MPO is a 10 member board representing all of the governing bodies within Victoria County that have the ability to maintain, change, or create projects for all modes of transportation.
