MPO’s were created by the federal government in 1962 to give cities with a population of 50,000 or more local input for urban transportation planning as well as where federal funds should be spent in their area.  By law, MPO’s are to give its citizens the opportunity to understand what it is that the MPO plans to do and to have a voice in all matters through open public meetings.  Unfortunately, many of these meetings are held during working hours, making it difficult for many of its citizens to attend.
