Jackson Area Metropolitan Planning Organization
In 1982, Jackson was designated a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) by the Governor of the State of Tennessee, since its "urbanized area" had exceeded 50,000 in population. The urbanized area is designated by the U.S. Census Bureau and is composed of an area comprised of the current city limits and the developing areas adjacent to the city.
The MPO coordinates continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning activities within the Jackson Area in cooperation with Tennessee Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration. The MPO planning activities include street and road projects and the public transportation system in Jackson. The MPO planning activities are performed on a day-to-day basis by a professional staff at the Jackson Municipal Regional Planning Commission, subject to the concurrence of the
MPO Executive Board and Technical Staff.
In order to encourage a balance of all modes of transportation, the MPO Staff prepares plans and programs that identifies all transportation planning and related activities to be undertaken within the Jackson Area.
