The challenge of being able to provide transportation infrastructure and services to meet the region’s growing mobility demands are increasing. In 2008, the number of residents was over 161,000 and by 2035 the population is projected to be nearly 274,000.

The current Federal legislation –SAFETA-LU emphasis the relationships between air quality, land use and all modes of transportation. The Clean Air Act Amendments require transportation plans, programs and projects in non-attainment areas to not cause or contribute to violations of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards.  Before funding is obligated, there is coordination between the MPO and the Federal, State and Local agencies responsible for environmental protection, land use management, natural resources and historic preservation.
