About the CRTPO Board

The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization serves as the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) policy board for the Charlotte urban area.

The Policy Board is the CRTPO’s governing body and is responsible for carrying out the metropolitan planning process as specified in federal statutes (23 USC 134; 49 USC 5303).

The Policy Board consists of elected officials from throughout the CRTPO’s planning area. In addition, the North Carolina Board of Transportation (NCBOT) is represented by those members appointed to serve Division 10 and Division 12, and the Metropolitan Transit Commission (MTC) is represented by a voting member of the MTC.

Purpose and goals:

  1. To develop and direct a continuing, comprehensive transportation planning process carried on cooperatively by the State and local communities in concurrence with Federal guidelines.
  2. To advise the governing bodies and agencies within the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization on the status of needs identified through the continuing transportation planning process.
  3. To facilitate coordination and communication between governing bodies and agencies represented on the board and Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC).
  1. To facilitate coordination between the governing bodies and agencies of the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization and the North Carolina Board of Transportation.
  2. To assist the general public in understanding decisions and policies of the policy boards and agencies.
  3. To act as a forum for cooperative decision-making by elected officials of this metropolitan area in cooperation with the State, thereby serving as the basis for a cooperative planning process.


CRTPO Board meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6PM.

All meetings are accessible to the general public on Facebook Live.
