Updating the Whatcom region’s long-range transportation plan
As both the federally-designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO) and the state-designated regional transportation planning organization (RTPO), WCOG is responsible for developing and maintaining a long-range metropolitan transportation plan (MTP) to satisfy federal requirements, and a regional transportation plan (RTP) to meet the requirements of Washington’s Growth Management Act. Because both plans call for a continuous, cooperative and comprehensive process, WCOG combines the MTP and RTP into a single document to ensure that the transportation strategies developed will serve the entire region. The current plan – called Whatcom Mobility 2040, was adopted in 2017 and is available as a separate website: www.whatcommobility.org.
