ABOUT THE APMPO


The Alexandria-Pineville Metropolitan Planning Organization (APMPO), staffed by the RAPC, partners with the State of Louisiana, Rapides Parish, and municipal governments to comprehensively plan for federally funded or regionally significant transportation systems inside the Alexandria-Pineville metropolitan planning area. 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 multi-modal transportation planning and investment decision-making inside the Alexandria-Pineville metro area. It does not to fund, design, build, or operate transportation systems. 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 Public Participation Plan (P3), 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.
