The CRTPO recognizes the importance of public engagement as a critical component of the continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive (3-C) transportation planning process required by the Federal Highway Administration. The PIP update defines the criteria to identify CTP amendment types for all transportation modes, states the CTP amendment process, and simplifies the guidelines.
CRTPO is the federally designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Charlotte urbanized area which includes Iredell, Mecklenburg and Union counties. More information is available on the CRTPO website at www.crtpo.org.
