Troutman is a member of CRTPO (Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization).  The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Charlotte Urbanized Area. Federal legislation requires Urbanized Areas with populations larger than 50,000 to have an MPO, whose primary function is to carry out the transportation planning process among the member jurisdictions within its established planning area boundary. Due to the growth of the Charlotte Urbanized Area, and the subsequent expansion of the MPO planning area boundary, the CRTPO was established in place of the former Mecklenburg-Union MPO.


CRTPO in responsible for the region-wide Comprehensive Transportation Plan and the Metropolitan Transportation Plan as well as other funding opportunities.  See the link below for more information on CRTPO.
