October Joint Tri-MATS Committee Meeting
Our office serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Tri-Cities area in southeastern Washington State. We also serve as the Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RTPO) for jurisdictions within Benton & Franklin counties.
The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) describes the transportation planning activities undertaken by our office. Tasks included in the UPWP are the result of issues identified by the ongoing Tri-Cities Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (Tri-MATS). Tri-MATS is comprised of two working committees, the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and the Policy Advisory Committee (PAC), which hold meetings the first and second Thursday of each month.
