Abstract:
Iowa’s transportation system is funded through federal, state, local, and private sources. Federal funds are managed through a unique transportation planning partnership involving nine Metropolitan Planning Organizations, 18 Regional Planning Affiliations, and the Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT). This cooperative venture focuses on conducting transportation planning and programming for all areas of the state. The Metropolitan Planning Organizations and Regional Planning Affiliations are associations of local governments established by federal and state law with the goals of strengthening local units of government and promoting intergovernmental cooperation. They provide assistance to local member governments related to transportation planning, economic development, operation of transit systems.
In 1968, Iowa officially recognized the concept of regional oriented planning for non-urban areas through the delineation of 16 rural transit planning regions, also called Councils of Government (COG). These regions were designated to address existing and future needs for planning; coordination and administration of state services; common issues, goals and opportunities; and a base for better allocation of resources.
In 1991, the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) required states to establish a transportation planning process to serve areas outside the MPOs and TMAs. Iowa adopted a process where non-metropolitan transportation planning, project prioritization and funding are undertaken primarily by local governments through a regional planning agency. As a starting point for creating a state/regional partnership, the Iowa Transportation Commission designated the 16 existing rural transit planning regions as a basis for local consultation. Local members were given the opportunity to stay with an existing rural transit agency, join an adjacent COG, or form a new regional affiliation. As a result, Iowa has 18 regional planning affiliations to implement transportation planning and programming in non-metropolitan areas.
In 1993, the Iowa Transportation Commission (Commission) adopted a new planning process patterned after the MPOs that created the regional planning affiliations (RPAs). In 1997 with the passage of TEA-21, the Commission reaffirmed its commitment to this regional transportation planning and programming process.
