The High Point Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (HPMPO) is responsible for an on-going, cooperative effort by local, state, and federal governments to do the following:
- Identify transportation needs by analyzing existing conditions and trends and make projections of future changes.
- Provide a factual basis for public policies and goals to meet the needs of people and their organizations.
- Prepare a plan in which streets, public transit, highways and other means of moving people and goods are properly related to plans and programs for the physical, social, economic and environmental development of the High Point urban area.
- Maintain a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive planning process that will enable plans to be kept up-to-date to meet changing conditions and enable the region the qualify for federal transportation funds.
The Organization is made up of 8 cities, 4 counties, and 3 NCDOT Divisions extending from southern Davidson County to I-40 in Guilford County.
Currently the MPO is working on a Regional Bicycle Plan, for more information click here.
