Abstract:

In 2011, national-level research was conducted by the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) Research Foundation on regional planning and development organizations’ efforts in rural and small metropolitan transportation planning. The research effort focuses particularly on regional-level transportation planning conducted by rural planning organizations (RPOs), which are often organized similarly to metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) but function mostly under contract to state DOTs to assist with tasks related to statewide and regional planning. This paper reviews the results of that research and describes common organizational and leadership structures, work elements completed through planning contracts, funding and staffing levels, and decisionmaking processes.
