In viewing some of the Michigan UA boundaries, I've found that some
current MPO modeled areas bleed into other UAs. For instance, a portion
of the Holland model area is now in the Grand Rapids UA. Also, the
Muskegon UA now extends into a county that is not part of its model
area. So, what are the implications of such cases? What is the process
for MPOs to reconcile their boundaries in such cases, or should one
expect no changes. I'd appreciate any clarifications on this issue.
