The Okaloosa-Walton Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) is the local, intergovernmental transportation policy board for Okaloosa and Walton counties in Florida. The board is comprised of local government officials who make decisions regarding transportation at the regional level. The Okaloosa-Walton TPO is required by federal and state 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 goods.
In addition to the TPO board, the Okaloosa-Walton 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.
