Every four years our partners at the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)  and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conduct an evaluation of the Broward MPO as part of their Transportation Management Area (TMA) Certification Review of this area. The evaluation includes everything our agency works on from transportation planning to public outreach to the financial health of the agency.

The MPO has also created electronic versions of the Federal agenda on the Agendas & Minutes page of its website. The PDF versions of these agendas can be found here (for April 8) and here (for April 9).

Public feedback is an essential part of this review. It’s your chance as someone who may live, work, or play in Broward to provide direct input on the transportation planning process.
