The Palm Beach MPO consists of the following Boards and Committees:
The Palm Beach MPO plans, prioritizes and funds transportation projects and programs. Every five years, the MPO updates a Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) that forecasts transportation demands and identifies cost-feasible projects for the next 25 years. The MPO then annually adopts a 5-year funding program that allocates federal and state transportation dollars to the projects in the LRTP that are most important to the MPO.
The MPO is responsible for transportation planning in Palm Beach County, Florida. Each urban area in the United States is part of MPO which acts as a liaison between local communities, their citizens, and the state and federal departments of transportation (DOTs). MPOs currently operate under the FAST Act (Fixing America's Surface Transportation).
