Metropolitan Planning Organization
From 1976 to 2021, the Peoria-Pekin Urbanized Area Transportation Study (PPUATS) served as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Peoria‑Pekin Metropolitan Area. PPUATS was composed of two committees: the Policy Committee and the Technical Committee. Effective July 1, 2021, the PPUATS Policy Committee merged with TCRPC, and TCRPC assumed the role, duties, and responsibilities of the MPO. The Technical Committee continues to prepare, review, and recommend actions to TCRPC for approval.
The Technical Committee is the MPO technical advisory body. The Technical Committee is made up of transportation professionals representing their member communities and provides transportation expertise to the MPO planning process. The Technical Committee prepares, reviews, and recommends actions to the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission for their approval.
The Technical Committee meets the third Wednesday of every month at 9:00am at the offices of TCRPC.
