Comprehensive Transportation Plan Work Group

Introduction and Mission

Over the last four years, the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) has had multiple working groups to address issues in the Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP).

The last working group was involved with creating a whitepaper from 2018 to mid-2019. The Centralina Council of Governments (CCOG) conducted the study and developed a Whitepaper to understand and document how member jurisdictions within CRTPO are preserving and protecting corridors and rights-of-way (ROW) for the future transportation projects. View the final report here: "Have the Rules Changed? A White Paper on Implementing the CTP and Corridor Preservation."

Eleven (11) recommendations were developed as a result of this study, and are highlighted in the whitepaper. One of the main goals for this new CTP working group is to further evaluate and make final recommendations to the CRTPO Technical Committee and Board on potential ways to address the issues and challenges for ROW preservation.

The second goal of this working group is to review the existing CTP amendment guidelines and help to rewrite or update the processes, gaps and missing sections (such as guidelines for transit and rail).

The anticipated duration for this working group to meet is 18 months. The kick-off meeting will be held in October 2019.
