Transportation planning in this area includes the involvement of the City of Rapid City, the City of Box Elder, the City of Summerset, the City of Piedmont, Pennington County, Meade County, the Rapid City Area School District #51-4, the Meade County School District, Ellsworth Air Force Base, the South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Association (FTA). This process results in the development of products and plans that assist in the overall development of the transportation planning process.
The MPO prepares a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) each year that identifies the transportation planning work tasks and the anticipated product or outcome from those tasks. The UPWP also identifies the funding, staffing and proposed project schedule.
The MPO also prepares an annual Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) used to identify the funding mechanism for transportation projects using federal dollars within the Rapid City Area MPO. The local jurisdictions working through the Rapid City Area MPO's Executive Policy Committee (EPC) determine how the area's transportation system is developed and expanded.
The Long Range Planning Division provides staff support to the MPO as well as three advisory committees that support MPO activities, including the Citizens Advisory Committee, the Technical Coordinating Committee and the Executive Policy Committee.
