Transportation plays a vital role in today’s economy, providing access to jobs, education, shopping and recreation. It is an integral part of our mobile society influencing urban development, economic vitality, quality of life and national defense.
The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is prepared annually and serves as a basis for requesting federal planning funds from the U.S. Department of Transportation as well as a management tool for scheduling, budgeting and monitoring planning activities of participating entities.
Every five years, ACOG produces a new Metropolitan Transportation Plan that creates a long-term vision of our regional transportation system. TEncompass 2040, looks 25 years into the future to guide Central Oklahoma’s transportation dollars.
Public participation is a key component of any government process. Public entities are accountable to both the public and their elected representatives and thus responsible for proactively pursuing meaningful input to best serve all constituencies.
