On Wednesday, December 13th from 11:00am - 2:00pm a representative from the Memphis Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will be in the library lobby to get your input on transportation-related issues. The MPO is is responsible for the transportation policy development, planning, and programming for the counties of Shelby and Fayette, Tennessee, and DeSoto and Marshall Counties, Mississippi. It is a government organization whose mission is "to encourage and promote the development of a balanced, efficient, and affordable regional transportation system to meet the needs of people and goods moving within and through the region, while minimizing the effects of transportation-related air pollution."

Using federal regulations for guidance, short and long-term transportation plans that meet community objectives are developed and implemented. A multi-modal planning approach is used to assure a vibrant and growing system of roads, rail, transit systems, pedestrian/bicycle trails, airports and waterways. The MPO will be creating a new transportation plan and as part of the plan development, they are looking for your ideas and priorities on transportation-related issues.
