All interested parties are invited to comment on the metropolitan transportation system planning conducted by the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (ECWRPC), Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), Valley Transit, and local units of government in the Appleton Metropolitan Planning Area.
Under federal law, the ECWRPC serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Appleton Urbanized Area.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is conducting a planning certification review of the metropolitan transportation planning process in the Appleton Metropolitan Planning Area. This review is conducted every four years. Public comments received will be incorporated in the review and considered together with other USDOT oversight activities to determine if the transportation planning process meets applicable requirements of federal transportation law.
Comments are sought pertaining to the MPO’s transportation planning processes, public involvement procedures, transportation system plans, and transportation improvement program.
Public comments are invited and encouraged and may be submitted in writing or in person at a public open house meeting to be held at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 23, 2023 at:
