CALENDAR OF EVENTS
The TPO recently updated the Long Range Regional Mobility Plan for the Knoxville Region. In short, the Mobility Plan lays out the vision for transportation in our region for the next 27+ years. All transportation projects that receive federal funding or are regional in nature must first be in this plan.
This plan was adopted by the TPO Executive Board on April 24, 2013. It was endorsed by the East Tennessee South Rural Planning Organization (RPO) on April 12, 2013.
The plan was amended by the TPO Executive Board on March 10, 2015.
