7 Footer Text Date 1992 REGIONAL MOBILITY PLAN

8 Footer Text Date Need for Plan Traditional funding won’t address needs, and current plans don’t identify all regional needs. Competition for additional funding is tough without a single documented plan supported by all. RGV is at a disadvantage without one. There is a perception that the RGV is not united in regional priorities. Rio Grande Valley Mobility Plan

9 Footer Text Date Advantages of a Regional Mobility Plan: Provides a single plan covering the entire region. Focuses on regional needs. Is needs based (not financially constrained). Supports local delegations in pursuing additional funding. Documents valley-wide support of regional priorities. Builds on previous success of past RMPs. Rio Grande Valley Mobility Plan

11 Footer Text Date Merging of the Three Valley MPOs REGIONAL RIO GRANDE VALLEY MPO

12 Footer Text Date Merging of the Three Valley MPOs Reasons for TxDOT Initiative: Region will have ONE voice, providing a much greater opportunity for funding regional-type projects (i.e. FM 1925). Single regional MPO for the Valley would have almost 1.1 million people in the urbanized area and rank as the fifth largest in the state by population, following D-FW, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. TxDOT Commission and Administration have urged local officials in the past to consider merging the MPOs, most notably at the 9/26/2013 TxDOT Commission meeting held in McAllen. Space X, 2 nd Access, Mazatlan-Matamoros Mexican Superhighway, Mexican oil/gas privatization, UT-RGV, Interstates. A single regional MPO would be able to identify regional-type projects needed to address the following major developments: One set of planning documents, (TIP, MTP, etc.) for the region instead of three separate ones.
