The mission of the Pasco County MPO is to develop a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive, long-range transportation plan that supports the mobility needs and economic development of the community that preserves the neighborhoods, protects the environment, enhances the community's quality of life, promotes usage of public transportation, and cooperates with and coordinates between the community and agencies to enable the plan to work.
Integral to the plan are policies that guide development of a balanced transportation system that is inclusive of the public's opinions. Engaging the public in the transportation decision-making process is the vision that drives the PIP. Communication regarding the range of choices for the future; the role transportation improvements can play in securing that future to the public, agencies, constituencies, and affected communities; and allowing for multiple ways of public feedback are the foundation on which the goals and objectives of the MPO are built.
It is a priority that all citizens in Pasco County be given the opportunity to participate in the transportation planning process, including low-income individuals, the elderly, persons with disabilities, and persons with limited English proficiency (LEP).
In accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other nondiscrimination laws, public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, familial, or income status.
