What Can The MPO Do For Me?

Whether you are a member of the MPO or a private citizen, you have a role to play with the MPO. The MPO Policy Board members and Technical Advisory Committee are responsible to the residents of the region for the quality of transportation services and for the impact of transportation on their overall quality of life. This means the members share the responsibility for making sure that major transportation issues of today and tomorrow are dealt with fairly and properly.

Citizens are encouraged to participate in the transportation planning process during the MPO meetings or to contact the MPO staff with any transportation ideas or concerns.


Public Participation Plan

The Public Participation Plan (PPP) is intended to ensure that public participation is an integral and effective part of the Abilene MPO activities and that decisions are made with the benefit and consideration of important public perspectives. This plan provides a mechanism for bringing a broad range of diverse viewpoints and values into the Abilene MPO decision making process.
