Status of the metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO)

TTCI is patiently waiting for the 2020 Census Bureau announcement and distribution of the updated data on urban areas. The Traverse City Urbanized Area will have to have a population greater than 50,000 to meet the MPO threshold. The release of the summary files is key to know if the Traverse City urban area will be designated as an MPO. It is expected to be released in December 2022. Networks Northwest and TTCI continuously work with MDOT regarding this designation and this website will be updated accordingly.

Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
