Subject: [CTPP] MPO's Areas with More Than One Urbanized Area


CTTP List Serv:


I was wondering if there are any MPO’s out there that have more than one urbanized area in your area and if so how is this handled?  I am also seeking opinions of other MPO professionals about the pro’s and con’s of having two in one MPO area, especially if they are not contiguous to each other based on the urban area criteria.
