Impact in community: KIPDA serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Louisville/Jefferson County KY-IN urbanized area. A Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is defined in Federal Transportation Legislation (23 USC 134(b) and 49 USC 5303(c)) as the designated local decision-making body that is responsible for carrying out the metropolitan transportation planning process. An MPO must be designated for each urban area with a population of more than 50,000 people (i.e., for each Urbanized Area (UZA) defined in the most recent decennial Census). The Louisville/Jefferson County KY-IN Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA) consists of the U.S. Census-defined Louisville Urbanized Area and the area projected to be urbanized by the year 2030.

Volunteer Opportunities: None

How 1si members can help your organization: The public plays a key role by letting us know your thoughts about transportation. This involves the experiences you may be having now, your ideas for the future, and comments on prospective projects and programs. Attend public meetings, email comments, or contact KIPDA staff with your concerns.

Additional information: We will be working on the next long range plan throughout 2018 and will offer many opportunities for the public to provide useful and valuable information for future planning purposes.
