CTP Maps Adoption
CRTPO's policy board approved the four CTP maps at its January meeting, following the recommendation of the Technical Coordinating Committee earlier that month. Upon adoption, the maps were presented to the North Carolina Board of Transportation (BOT) for adoption. The BOT’s action is expected in March 2017.
Right-of-Way Protection & Amendments
The next major CTP initiatives will be right-of-way (ROW) protection and developing processes for amending the maps. ROW protection activities will be related to ensuring that all CRTPO member jurisdictions have adequate ordinances in place to ensure that future thoroughfares will be protected from development, thus ensuring that an effective transportation network can be implemented.
Regarding amendments, the CTP is intended to be a plan that properly reflects the changing transportation needs of the region. Amendment processes will be needed to ensure that proper guidelines are in place to inform citizens and ensure that their comments are appropriately considered when changes to the CTP are proposed.
