The RVMPO carries out three major work activities to meet specific federal requirements. These are:
- The development and maintenance of the Rogue Valley Regional Transportation Plan (RVRTP) through a continuing, comprehensive, and cooperative (“3C”) planning process.
- The biennial development of a four-year program for highway and transit improvements. This program is known as the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
- The annual adoption of a comprehensive one-year planning program: the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), which describes and coordinates the individual transportation planning activities of all agencies in the area.
This includes developing the area’s long-range transportation plan (RTP), which addresses the region’s projects, programs and policies for at least a 20-year period. It also includes maintaining the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which is a short-range document listing transportation projects to be built.
