    • 2. Purpose of the Study <ul><li>To examine alternative organizational / decision-making structures and processes that would better position the greater Charlotte Bi-State Region to plan, develop, and implement an effective regional multi-modal transportation system. </li></ul>
    • 3. Transportation Planning Areas
    • 4. Current MPO/RPO Functions The gap between current effectiveness & perceived importance based upon Study survey results
    • 5. Peer Regions in the Study Peer Region Key Information Atlanta 1 MPO for all or part of 18 counties; 2000 UZA population of 3.5 million; 2010 population estimate of 5.1 million Austin 1 MPO for all or part of 5 counties; 2000 UZA population of 901,920; 2010 population estimate of 1.7 million Kansas City 1 MPO for all or part of 7 counties; bi-state; 2000 UZA population of 1.4 million (combined 2 UZAs); 2009 population estimate of 1.9 million Minneapolis-St. Paul 1 MPO for all or part of 7 counties; 2000 UZA population of 2.4 million; 2009 population estimate of 2.9 million Nashville 1 MPO for all or part of 7 counties; 2000 UZA population of 885,790 (combined 2 UZAs); estimate not available San Diego 1 MPO for 1 county; 2000 UZA population of 2.7 million; 2010 population estimate of 3.2 million Tampa-St. Petersburg 5 MPOs for 1 county each, 1 MPO for 2 counties, and 1 Rural County; regional coordinating/policy body; 2000 UZA population of 3.1 million (combined 6 UZAs); 2009 population estimate of 4.1 million

    • 7. Study Findings: Three Options for Region <ul><ul><li>Option 1: Maintain Status Quo </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Option 2: Maintain Current Transportation Planning Agencies, but create a new mechanism to address issues of regional concern (Tampa-St. Petersburg Example) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Option 3: Merge Some/All Transportation Planning Agencies </li></ul></ul>
