The federal government requires MPOs to prepare a Metropolitan Transportation Plan, or MTP, to receive federal funding for transportation projects. The MTP includes a list of transportation projects that must be fiscally constrained and based on the amount of funding the MPO expects to receive over the next 20 years. MPOs update the MTP every four or five years to reflect new data and changes to regional priorities for transportation investment.
The purpose of the GOYORK 2045 Plan is to develop a coordinated effort to implement transportation improvements that attempt to achieve York County’s future goals that are supported by public consensus of York County’s physical, social, economic, and institutional environments. The goals are outlined in other elements of the York County Comprehensive Plan.
GOYORK 2045 Plan is developed in a continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative process around a performance-based approach to transportation decision-making. This includes tracking performance measures, setting data-driven targets for each measure, and outlining a project selection process to help meet those targets. The targets and progress towards these targets will be evaluated during each update of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).
