Regional Planning Commissions

MoDOT also recognizes the need for coordinated planning efforts outside the metropolitan areas. To achieve this goal, MoDOT will work with the regional planning organizations throughout the state. The RPOs were established as a result of the State and Regional Planning Community Development Act of 1965.

Because RPOs coordinate local issues related to regional planning and development, they maintain an active working relationship with MoDOT. Federal law requires that states consult local officials in the transportation planning process. Regional planning organizations are consortiums of local governments. As such, they develop regional consensus and address transportation issues and are the most logical entities to help MoDOT fulfill federal requirements and capture local perspectives. MoDOT relies on RPOs to provide uniform planning services that reflect local needs and priorities.
