About

The Fox Cities Metropolitan Planning Organization staff works with all jurisdictions, operating agencies and the public to carry out cooperative, continuing and comprehensive transportation and land use planning. The East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission certifies that the planning requirements have been met, which includes a Unified Transportation Work Program, a Public Participation Plan, a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), and a Long Range Transportation and Land Use Plan.

All the jurisdictions that comprise the urbanized area worked together to compile and prepare a collective future land use plan.  The planning process includes participation from the MPO Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), the Long Range Plan Committee, and the standing Transportation Committee of the Policy Board for the MPO. The MPO works closely with Federal Highway Administration and Wisconsin Department of Transportation staff, public and private transportation providers and other stakeholders in the MPO area. The public was invited to participate in all facets of the process and were solicited to review and comment at key points including the analysis and draft recommendations. The TAC, Long Range Plan Committee and Policy Board reviewed and discussed the alternative analysis used to identify future transportation needs. The plan represents a collective long term vision for the Fox Cities area based on local land use plans and policies.
