CRTPO currently consists of 16 jurisdictions, with the City of Charlotte serving as the lead planning agency. Each jurisdiction, as well as the NCDOT, is represented on the Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC) and the MPO board. The TCC is made up of staff members who make recommendations to the MPO based on technical expertise, whereas the MPO is a decision making body made up of elected officials. These two bodies work closely with NCDOT, and other local and regional agencies, to make transportation planning decisions for the CRTPO region. The MPO must adhere to federal guidelines throughout the decision making process, and public involvement opportunities are conducted and encouraged each step of the way.
