ACOG Metropolitan Planning Organization Committees
ACOG Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Committees
Multimodal transportation planning and implementation require a unified policy direction for all modes of travel. This direction is provided by a committee structure, which was developed jointly by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation and local governments within the ACOG MPO area.
The structure consists of number of modal committees anchored by a Policy Committee (PC) and a Technical Committee (TC).
Technical review and guidance for the ACOG MPO planning programs are provided by the ACOG MPO Technical Committee (TC). This committee is generally comprised of city planners, city engineers and traffic managers, and also includes representatives of various modes, environmental agencies, the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority, ODOT and the federal transportation agencies.
The ACOG MPO Policy Committee (PC) has 45 members and is the single policy group for regional transportation decision making in the ACOG MPO area. The voting membership is composed of locally elected officials, state transportation department managers and commissioners, and designees from other local agencies, representing various transportation modes.
Technical review and discussion on regional planning topics are provided by the Areawide Planning and Technical Advisory Committee (APTAC). This committee is generally composed of city planners and representatives of various local and state agencies.
The purpose of the Active Transportation Advisory Committee, formerly known as the Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee, is to help promote regional bicycle and pedestrian guidelines for the planning, design and construction of facilities. It is tasked with updating and maintaining the regional bicycle and pedestrian system and to serve in a planning and technical advisory capacity to the ACOG MPO Policy Committee.
