Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) Priorities, Strategies, and Actions
The Metropolitan Transportation Plan’s draft Priorities, Strategies, and Actions are described below. RPC welcomes feedback on these items, and will incorporate comments received into the plan.
The MTP is guided by six overarching Priorities that will be considered throughout all levels of decision making. These priorities synthesize the MTP’s planning input data, stakeholder feedback, and RPC staff expertise. The plan further identifies a series of Strategies that describe the broad activity types that will address one or more of the Priorities. Subsequent chapters of the MTP describe specific Actions that the RPC will complete, via its programs and projects, to implement the Strategies.
The RPC is currently updating the MTPs for all four Metropolitan Planning Areas (MPAs) it serves: Mandeville-Covington, New Orleans, Slidell and South Tangipahoa. In order to achieve consistency in the planning process the RPC aims to include similar Priorities, Strategies and Actions across all four MTPs. We therefore welcome comments as they relate to any of the MPAs.
