The Bay County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) is the local, intergovernmental transportation policy board for Bay County, Florida. The board is comprised of local government officials who make decisions regarding transportation at the regional level. The Bay County TPO is required by state and federal legislation to establish a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive planning process. The TPO also works to increase safety, security, accessibility, mobility, and connectivity for people and freight. In addition to the TPO board, the Bay County TPO has a Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC) and a Citizens’ Advisory Committee (CAC).
The TCC is made up of local government staff and other stakeholders. Their knowledge of local projects and issues allow the members of the TCC to provide technical advice to the TPO board.
The CAC is comprised of members of the general public who express an interest in transportation planning. Prospective members complete an application and must be approved by the committee and the TPO board. For more information about the Bay County TPO, please contact staff at 850-332-7976.
