The San Angelo Metropolitan Planning Organization is a stand-alone governmental entity, which serves as the transportation planning authority for the area. Our planning area is approximately 116 square miles which includes San Angelo and a portion of Tom Green County.

SA-MPO is responsible for creating, reviewing, and updating all transportation plans. The primary documents include the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). The MTP is a 25-year long-range plan that details transportation plans and projects. The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) lists funded projects that will be constructed during a four-year period. The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) contains information related to the organization’s operation; it is essentially the MPOs operating budget. Other documents the San Angelo MPO is responsible for include:

  • Public Participation Plan
  • Limited English Proficiency Plan
  • San Angelo Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
  • Annual Performance and Expenditure Report
  • Annual Project Listing Report

These plans, programs, and reports identify transportation activities and financial information. These documents are consistent with applicable federal, state, and local agency documents, which guarantee a collective unified approach to transportation planning.

Operational components of San Angelo Metropolitan Planning Organization include a policy board and professional staff. The organization has ad-hoc and special committees, which are created as needed to focus on certain projects or transportation planning issues. The San Angelo Metropolitan Planning Organization Policy Board consists of voting representatives from Texas Department of Transportation, City of San Angelo, Concho Valley Transit District, San Angelo Chamber of Commerce, and Tom Green County. State and federal elected officials participate as non-voting members, and the City of San Angelo and Texas Department of Transportation (TxDoT) provide support services.

Other planning objectives include making transportation safer, giving people greater access to mobility options, protecting the environment while promoting economic conservation, improving the connectivity and integration of the current transportation system, promoting efficient transportation options, and preserving existing transportation as much as possible.
