What is the MPO Board?
The MPO Board is the governing policy board for the Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (GCLMPO). Membership includes elected officials from each of the participating jurisdictions, the area’s representative on the Board of Transportation, an advisory non-voting member from FHWA, and other members as may be designated by the MOU. The MPO Board provides policy direction for the planning process, facilitates communication and coordination among the member jurisdictions and guides the development of a comprehensive multi-modal transportation program for the urban area. The MPO Board directs the 3-C process through its annual review and approval of the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP); the MPO’s Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP), and through review and approval of changes to the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).
The MPO Board meets the fourth Thursday of every other month at 6:30 PM. For more information on location, please call 704-866-6837.
