Background Discussion

At their March 23, 2015, Board meeting, the Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) approved the updated standard Intergovernmental Coordination and Review and Public Transportation Coordination Joint Participation Agreement (JPA). That JPA must now be executed by all participating parties and the Florida Department of Transportation.

The coordination JPA supports the Sarasota/Manatee MPO's mandate to execute and maintain an agreement with the operators of public transportation systems, including port and aviation authorities. The JPA describes how planning activities will be coordinated and how programming will be part of the comprehensively planned development for the Metropolitan Planning Area. The effort further supports the MPO's effort to conduct a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning process.
