The MTP defines the policies, programs and projects to be implemented during the next 20 years in order to provide mobility choices to residents in the CRTPO’s planning area. The MTP contains recommendations for the following types of surface transportation: streets and roads; transit; bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The MTP also contains descriptions and assessments of conditions affecting the surface transportation of persons and/or the movement of freight in the CRTPO’s planning area. The air quality conformity determination report demonstrates that the total emissions projected for the MTP are within the emissions limits ("budgets") established by the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for air quality.
The CRTPO is tentatively scheduled to take action on the MTP and air quality conformity determination report on April 16, 2014.
The CRTPO is the federally-designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Charlotte urbanized area.
