  2. 2. RPO AMERICA COUNCIL OF PEERS SHARE THE CONCEPT ODOT SUPPORT OKLAHOMA RTPO
  3. 3. 2012 ODOT ESTABLISHED AND FUNDED REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PILOT PROGRAM SWODA WAS APPOINTED AS THE PILOT GROUP FOR WESTERN OKLAHOMA
  4. 4. Transportation Language
  5. 5. SWODABOARD SWODA Board of Trustees by resolution created Southwest Oklahoma Regional Transportation Planning Organization (SORTPO). SORTPO established a regional transportation policy board, technical committee, developed and implemented a Public Participation Plan, coordinated data collection and the adoption of a county transportation plan. These milestones were accomplished by support and guidance from ODOT.
  6. 6. In federal fiscal year 2016 through a collaborative effort involving South Western Oklahoma Development Authority (SWODA), Southwest Oklahoma Regional Transportation Planning Organization (SORTPO), the Association of South Central Oklahoma Governments (ASCOG) and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) the SORTPO area was redefined to include both SWODA and ASCOG regions. Effectively this established a RTPO area of sixteen counties in the southwest quadrant of the State of Oklahoma. The initial work performed by SORTPO set the foundation for expansion and growth for regional transportation planning in southwest Oklahoma.
  7. 7. Successful collaboration and cooperation between state transportation, council of governments, and local stakeholders is an undertaking that is due recognition and acknowledgement to all “players” involved. All too often the “Friday lights syndrome” can sabotage opportunities for local areas to excel. SWODA and ASCOG recognized the opportunity to incorporate efforts and expand the RTPO area already established by SWODA thus paving the way for a more efficient and effective planning process.
  8. 8. ODOT’s investment of federal Statewide Planning and Research (SPR) funds and staff support in Oklahoma’s Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPO) continues to meet with successes; which can be measured by the establishment of a regional transportation policy board, development and implementation of the Public Participation Plan, review and prioritization of regional Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) grant applications, coordination of data collection and the development and adoption of multiple county long range plans since 2014.
