Public participation is a critical component in the transportation planning process. We invite you to join us in shaping our region’s future.
We are currently updating our Public Participation Plan to reflect two changes. First, the Duval County Transportation Disadvantaged Local Coordinating Board is now being managed by the Northeast Florida Regional Council. Second, due to a change in Florida legislation, routine monthly meetings are no longer required to be advertised in daily print newspapers. The TPO will continue to advertise these meetings on our website, e-news and social media. Please review the draft plan below and submit comments by April 9, 2023.

Our Board and Committees meet monthly except January and July at the TPO offices. Visit the meetings page for dates, times and agendas. Meetings provide an opportunity for public comments.
The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) provides an opportunity for citizens to participate in the transportation planning process.
The Smart North Florida Coalition hosts periodic Tech and Beer events to provide networking and educational opportunities for entrepreneurs, businesses, investors and others interested in the improving the lives of our citizens through data, technology and collaboration.
The North Florida Clean Fuels Coalition hosts events focusing on alternative fuels, vehicles and strategies to improve our environment and reduce fossil fuel dependence.
You can join either of these groups through the sign-up button above.
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states: “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color or national origin be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” Subsequent laws and Presidential Executive Orders added handicap, sex, age or income status to the criteria for which discrimination is prohibited.
As a recipient of state and federal funds, the North Florida TPO is subject to the provisions of Title VI, including environmental justice. Based on Federal publication #FHWA-EP-00-0143, metropolitan planning organizations like the TPO are the primary forum for state departments of transportation (i.e. the Florida Department of Transportation), transit providers, local agencies, and the public to develop local transportation plans and programs that address a metropolitan area’s needs.
