NARC Report Released, Integrating Public Health and Transportation
Planning: Perspectives for MPOs and COGs:
NARC recently released a summary report of efforts made by metropolitan
planning organizations (MPOs) to integrate public health factors and
considerations into their transportation plans. Additionally, the report
offers options through which an MPO can work with its Council of
Government (COG) to integrate non-transportation planning activities
into the transportation and public health discussion.
