KIPDA serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Louisville/Jefferson County KY-IN urbanized area. A Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is defined in Federal Transportation Legislation (23 USC 134(b) and 49 USC 5303(c)) as the designated local decision-making body that is responsible for carrying out the metropolitan transportation planning process. An MPO must be designated for each urban area with a population of more than 50,000 people (i.e., for each Urbanized Area (UZA) defined in the most recent decennial Census). The Louisville/Jefferson County KY-IN Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA) consists of the U.S. Census-defined Louisville Urbanized Area and the area projected to be urbanized by the year 2030. For administrative purposes, the MPA includes Bullitt, Jefferson and Oldham counties in Kentucky and Clark and Floyd counties in Indiana as well as 1/10th of a square mile in Harrison County, Indiana. The Louisville/Jefferson County KY-IN MPA is further defined as a Transportation Management Area by the United States Department of Transportation, and the MPO is responsible for implementing the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act, or FAST Act, in the MPA. For additional information concerning transportation decision making and the role of the MPO, please see the USDOT Guide to Transportation Decision Making (PDF, 1.9 MB).
The Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) is the policy board responsible for carrying out key MPO policy functions and directing the transportation planning process for the Louisville (KY-IN) Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA) in accordance with the Federal Transportation Act, MAP-21. The Transportation Technical Coordinating Committee (TTCC) is responsible for providing technical advice and assisting the TPC in carrying out the responsibilities assigned to the MPO.
