Franklin County Metropolitan Planning Organization (FCMPO)

Who We Are

The Franklin County Metropolitan Planning Organization (FCMPO) is a transportation policy-making and decision-making entity made up of community members that represent the interests of transportation, businesses, state and local governments, and the general public of Franklin County. The FCMPO is supported by the staff of the Franklin County Planning Department.

What We Do

In pursuit of the goals and planning processes outlined in 23 USC 134 and 49 USC 5303, FCMPO is responsible for the adherence to and periodic development and updating of Unified Planning Work Programs (UPWPs), Transportation Improvement Projects (TIPs), and Long Range Transportation Plans (LRTPs) among other planning tasks. FCMPO coordinates with PennDOT in planning for the transportation needs of the county.


The FCMPO consists of two committees:

The Policy Board is the decision-making body of FCMPO. The Board has 13 voting members including the county board of commissioners, PennDOT representatives, and elected municipal representatives among others.

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) provides recommendations to the Policy Board on transportation-related matters and yields no decision-making authority. The TAC consists of 11 voting members including the Franklin County Planning Department Director, PennDOT representatives, and staff representatives for municipalities among others.

Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

The LRTP serves as a 20-year, multi-modal guide for improving, operating, and maintaining our surface transportation system for both existing and potential future transportation needs. Current and future land use, economic development, and environmental concerns are all factors that are considered in the strategic development of the LRTP to achieve regional goals and objectives. Performance-based planning is used in the development of the LRTP to ensure effective and efficient use of public resources.

2018 Long Range Transportation Plan

Development of the 2023 LRTP is currently underway.
