Transportation Planning Documents


As a new MPO, we must establish several documents that describe what staff will be doing and how we are to engage the public when making transportation decisions. These documents must receive public review and the comments received must be addressed within the material.

Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) This document establishes the work products to be developed by the MPO during the contract year which runs from January 1 through December 31. The draft document below is proposed to cover the 2018 calendar year. The draft was approved for public review by the Policy Committee at their meeting of August 2, 2017. Formal adoption is slated for November 1, 2017. 

CBMPO UPWP FY 2018 - DRAFT

An update to the budget for the FY 2017 UPWP was approved by the Policy Committee at their August 2 meeting. The revised document is available here:

Public Participation Plan
Document describing how the public and affected agencies will be informed and their input received and handled regarding transportation planning within the area served by the Cartersville-Bartow Metropolitan Planning Organization. The Public Participation Plan was adopted by the CBMPO Policy Committee on June 3, 2014.

CBMPO PPP as of June 2014

UPDATE: In accordance with guidance from the Federal Transit Administration, the MPO is proposing to amend the Public Participation Plan to include the following statement:

"The public involvement process for the Transportation Improvement Program, Long Range Transportation Plan, Special Projects or other plans and programs is used to satisfy the Georgia Department of Transportation public participation process for the Program of Projects."

The addition to the language of the Public Participation Plan is expected to be on the agenda of the November 1, 2017 meeting for a vote of ratification by the Policy Committee.

Title VI Plan The MPO is assigned to Bartow County Community Development Department and follows the requirements of the Bartow County Title VI Plan which was adopted June 5, 2013.
