What's New at MPO
The Greater Madison MPO was featured in a USDOT Transportation Planning Capacity Building (TPCB) program Case Study: Greater Madison Metropolitan Planning Organization's Approach to Transportation Equity, which reports that "Instead of focusing only on equitable project and plan outcomes, GMMPO staff work to be proactive and intentional to ensure participation throughout the planning process includes perspectives and identities from all parts of the community." Further, "the MPO’s planning processes include consideration of the benefits and burdens allocated to historically disadvantaged communities. The MPO aims to improve the transit access, and broader transportation system, for historically disadvantaged communities." The MPO is thrilled to have its efforts recognized in this case study, and to encourage and support similar efforts in other jurisdictions.
The Greater Madison MPO is in the process of establishing the adjusted 2020 Census Madison Urban Area boundary for transportation planning and funding purposes, in accordance with Federal law and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) guidelines. Federal law requires that MPOs and State and local officials cooperatively set new urban area and planning area boundaries following the decennial Census and release of the urban areas defined by the U.S. Census Bureau. The draft adjusted Urban Area Boundary for the Greater Madison MPO was adopted at the February 7, 2024 meeting of the MPO Policy Board.
The MPO’s 2024 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) was adopted at the November 1, 2023 board meeting.
The MPO's Draft 2023 Dane County Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Plan was approved for release and public comment at the December 6, 2023 board meeting.
The MPO's Draft 2023 Title VI Non-Discrimination Program and Language Assistance Plan (Title VI Plan) was adopted at the November 1, 2023 board meeting.
The MPO's 2024-2028 Transportation Improvement Program was adopted at the October 4, 2023 board meeting.
