GRPC Metropolitan Planning Organization TMA Certification Review Site Visit

On Wednesday, March 10, 2021 the Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration are conducting an evaluation of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Metropolitan Planning Organization as part of the Transportation Management Area Certification Review. The Certification Review is required to be conducted every four years by federal law. Public comments are a vital element of the Certification Review process, as they allow citizens to provide direct input on the regional transportation planning process. The Federal Review Team would especially like to hear the public’s input on:

  • How well they are involved in the local transportation planning process.
  • If they are given the information, they need to become involved in the transportation planning process.
  • Whether the way in which they can get involved is clearly explained.

The public is invited to submit comments to the Federal Highway Administration, by mail, phone, or email. Comments received by April 12, 2021 will be considered in the drafting of the final Certification Review report.
