The LMPO Web site is intended to provide a public service to the community, visitors, potential business owners, and any others who may be interested in transportation planning. This website will be an essential tool in providing information to people concerning transportation planning activities. Federal transportation planning funds will be used to pay for this service. The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) requires Metropolitan Planning Organizations to publish and make available for public review transportation plans and reports in electronically accessible formats and means, such as the world wide web.
