Who Are the TPO Board & Committees?

Hillsborough TPO logoThe Hillsborough Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), formerly the Hillsborough Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), is a transportation policy-making board mandated by federal and state law. The Hillsborough TPO is directly responsible for making sure federal and state dollars spent on existing and future transportation projects and programs are based on a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive transportation planning process. Committed to meaningful public engagement throughout this process, the TPO is responsible for establishing priorities to meet short-term (next 5 years) and long-term (20+ years) multi-modal transportation needs for Tampa, Temple Terrace, Plant City and unincorporated Hillsborough County.

The TPO Board and Committees are guided by a set of by-laws and are certified by the federal government every four years.

For more information on who the TPO is and what it does, see the Joy of Looking Ahead to 2035 – Citizen’s Guide to Transportation Planning, or view FDOT’s Citizens Transportation Academy video on metropolitan planning with Hillsborough TPO Director Beth Alden.
