Description and Purpose

The Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) is the governing body of the Ames Area MPO through a 28-E Agreement approved by the Ames City Council, the Boone County Board of Supervisors, and the Story County Board of Supervisors.  The committee has been structured to include the mayor and city council from Ames, one supervisor each from Boone and Story Counties, one representative from the Ames Transit Agency (CyRide) and one representative from the City of Gilbert.  In addition, the cooperative nature of the process is promoted by the inclusion of advisory, non-voting, members representing the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Iowa State University and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).  The committee is made up of the following people:
  • *City of Ames Mayor (1)
    • John Haila

The Transportation Policy Committee provides policy direction for the development of regional long-range transportation planning. The committee also selects projects within the metropolitan area for inclusion in a short-range Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which details the expenditure of federal-aid highway and transit funds. In order to carry out these functions the Transportation Policy Committee will rely on technical expertise from staff of the member agencies and other affected entities.
