Kerr-Tar RPO Feasibility Study
Rural Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RPOs)
RPOs were mandated under a state law passed in July 2000 and implemented in 2002, requiring the establishment of RPOs to work cooperatively with the state to plan rural regional transportation and to advise the Department of Transportation on rural transportation policy (Senate Bill 1195, Article 17, General Statue 136-210 through 213). Over four million North Carolinians are served by the 19 RPOs.
The Kerr-Tar RPO facilitates regional transportation planning and public engagement for the following five counties: Franklin, Granville, Person, Vance and Warren.
The KTRPO is comprised of two committees, the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and the Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC). The TAC consists of local elected officials and a NC Board of Transportation member.
The TAC establishes goals, priorities, and objectives of the RPO, reviews and recommends changes to comprehensive transportation plans, reviews and approves an annual plan of work, and reviews and prioritizes transportation improvement projects for submission to the NCDOT.
The TCC consists of staff members from local government members, agencies and NCDOT. The TCC provides guidance and recommendations to the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC).
Tentative Meeting Schedule of the KTRPO TAC/TCC for 2021
