About Us

Founded in 1993, the Martin MPO is a federally mandated public agency that works to coordinate the improvement of all facets of the transportation network in Martin County. The Martin MPO is responsible for deciding how to collaboratively spend federal money on important transportation projects that deliver solutions, help keep Martin County in motion, and improve quality of life for all. This effort includes the monit­­oring and evaluation of existing conditions, the development of improvement strategies, the facilitation of meaningful public input.

All MPOs are designated and funded through Federal legislation mandating the coordination of plans and improvements in areas with a population of 50,000 or more.  The intent of the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1962 related to the authorization of MPOs was to ensure projects were developed according to “continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative” transportation planning – the “3C” planning approach.
