Asheville in Motion Mobility Plan

 

The City of Asheville supports and participates in regional transportation planning through the French Broad River Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), a partnership of 18 local governments in Buncombe, Haywood and Henderson Counties.

The MPO process is a partnership between local and state government to make decisions about transportation planning in urbanized areas and to meet planning requirements established by federal authorizing legislation for transportation funding.  Cooperatively, the MPO works with North Carolina DOT to develop transportation plans, travel models, thoroughfare plans, transit plans, bicycle and pedestrian plans. Also, the MPO works with the state on funding issues for transportation improvements, on project planning issues, and on issues such as environmental impacts and air quality. The MPO also works with local governments to coordinate land use and transportation planning.
