Mission Statement

The mission of the MPO is to maintain a continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative planning process. Led by two MPO committees, the process is designed to encourage involvement by all interested groups, such as the business community, neighborhood associations, environmental organizations, social service agencies, educational institutions, and the general public. The MPO in coordination with local governments, local transportation agencies, Georgia Department of Transportation, and Federal Highway and Transit Administration conduct the transportation planning process.
