MAP – 21 has more provisions for performance based planning and that has been integrated into the MPO planning processes. With MAP – 21, the Appleton MPO received an allocation of funds for the Transportation Alternatives Program. For 5310, the MPO and Valley Transit administer and coordinate the 5310 program. Staff has also incorporated performance measures into our planning processes. Staff recently attended a peer to peer exchange regarding systemic safety and is discussing with WisDOT how to incorporate systemic safety into some of the planning processes.
