Section 7: Urban Transportation Planning Process Contract Procedures Manual

Anchor: #i1004209

Summary

The urban transportation planning process is a federally mandated and federally funded prerequisite for the approval of programs of projects in urbanized areas. The metropolitan planning organization is a significant partner in the department’s planning activities in urbanized areas (cities with populations of 50,000 or more). The Urban Transportation Planning Process Contract Procedures Manual was developed to assist district staff in the daily management of the planning process.
