About the MPO pix

Welcome to the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization. 

The Broward MPO is a dynamic, federally mandated public agency that serves as a catalyst for change in transportation. With the coordination of 31 local governments and municipalities, more than 1.9 million residents, and over 13 million visitors each year, the Broward MPO enables seamless transportation and redevelopment in Broward County that provides an opportunity for people and communities to grow and thrive.

The Broward MPO is responsible for making policy on local transportation issues and deciding how to collaboratively spend federal money on important transportation projects that deliver solutions, help keep Broward County moving, and improve quality of life for all.

MPO Mission and Vision
  • Mission: To collaboratively plan, prioritize and fund the delivery of diverse transportation options.
  • Vision: Our work will have measurable positive impact by ensuring transportation projects are well selected, funded and delivered.

The voting members of the MPO Board are elected officials who represent the Broward County Board of County Commissioners, the 31 Broward municipalities, the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA/Tri-Rail), and the School Board of Broward County.  The MPO works with transportation stakeholders who represent all segments of the MPO’s planning areas: individual members of the public, civic and community groups, government agencies, and planning organizations at the local, county, state, and federal levels.

MPO Districts

The MPO Districts were developed to balance the voting powers of the MPO Board. Cities with similar characteristics (such as transportation-related challenges) were grouped together to form these districts.  The number of votes each district received derived by general population size, employment population, as well as a variety of other factors. The map in the link below will show the voting structure and boundaries of each MPO district.

Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) 

Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) -- This COOP was prepared by the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to develop, implement and maintain a viable COOP capability. This COOP complies with applicable internal agency policy, local and state regulations, and supports recommendations provided in the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Federal Preparedness Circular 65. This COOP has been distributed internally within the Broward MPO and with external agencies that may be affected by its implementation.
