[ARCHIVED] Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization Seeking Input

The Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), coordinates a multimodal transportation planning process for the Knoxville Urban Area. Member jurisdictions include Knox County and the urbanized areas of Anderson, Blount, Loudon and Sevier Counties and includes the following cities: Alcoa, Clinton, Knoxville, Lenoir City, Loudon, Maryville and Oak Ridge, the Town of Farragut, Tennessee Department of Transportation and East Tennessee Development District. We have recently completed the second draft of Mobility Plan 2040: Connecting People and Places. The Mobility Plan prioritizes the investment of federal dollars in our transportation system over the next 20 years identifying all projects that we anticipate our region will undertake during that timeframe. 

The TPO is seeking input from various federal, state, and local agencies and organizations having an interest in growth and development, transportation, safety, mobility options, economic development, and environmental conservation. This input is a valuable component of our process and we hope that your agency or organization will take time to review and provide comments. 

As part of the planning process a website ( has been created to allow your organization and anyone from the community to review and comment on the draft plan and appendices. You are welcome to use the form on this site or to email Jeff Welch ( TPO Director or Amy Brooks (, Integrated Planning Manager, directly with your comments. 

The TPO is requesting your organization's written comments on the draft plan by close of business Wednesday, March 15, 2017. Comments will be reviewed by staff and considered by TPO Executive Board prior to Plan approval in May 2017.
