ABOUT THE APMPO


The Alexandria-Pineville Metropolitan Planning Organization (APMPO), staffed by the RAPC, provides a forum for local decision-making regarding federal transportation funds for urbanized areas. This vital and important role in our community helps the metro area compete at the federal level for public dollars for transportation in our community.

APMPO is responsible for transportation policy, planning, and investment decision making in the Alexandria-Pineville metro area. It also anticipates, forecasts and plans for the transportation needs of today, tomorrow and the future. The APMPO maintains a long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), a short-range Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), a Participation Plan, and a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), among other documents.

The APMPO's Transportation Policy Committee sets regional, long-term transportation policy; prioritizes projects; and approves the long-range transportation plan, short-range Transportation Improvement Program, and other required documents.
