September to January: Gather ideas about possible studies from MPO staff, member municipalities, and the public

January to April: Analyze, evaluate, and select studies based on criteria and factors such as regional relevance, links to other MPO research, probability of implementation, rootedness in Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) values, and funding constraints

May to June: Incorporate feedback from MPO members, municipalities, the Regional Transportation Advisory Council, the public, and staff, and agree on a final list of studies for federal funding

July: Receive public comment on a draft document containing studies and other MPO budget priorities

Early August: Receive final endorsement by the MPO board

Late summer: Receive approval from our federal partners
