Introduction

The LRTP ensures the proper management and efficient operations of transportation systems within the County as well as complements regional planning initiatives. The process, managed by the MPO, requires analysis of current economic trends, an examination of socioeconomic conditions in planning areas, and the preparation of a final transportation vision for the Miami Urbanized Area. While this process requires significant input from technical committees, government leaders, and regional planning agencies, a key participant in the LRTP update process is the public at-large.

Getting Involved: Phase I Meetings!

The LRTP development process included two series of public involvement meetings. Each series included a meeting in each of six planning areas in Miami-Dade County.
