The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is one of the key products of the planning process. The MPO’s  Long Range Transportation Plan addresses the federal planning requirements that are the responsibility of the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) as the organization authorized to carry out the transportation planning process. Specific LRTP requirements are itemized in CFR Title 23, Section 450.322. The LRTP must contain the following elements and perspectives:

  • Address a 20-year planning horizon;

  • Include long-range and short-range multimodal strategies that facilitate efficient movement of people and goods;

  • Be updated at least every five years;

  • Identify transportation demand over the plan horizon;

  • Include citizen and public official involvement and participation in the plan development process;

  • Consider local comprehensive and land use plans; and

  • Include a financial plan

The Charlotte County- Punta Gorda MPO Year 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan was adopted by the  MPO in December , 2010.
