About the Farmington Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO)



The Farmington Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is the regional planning forum responsible for transportation planning for the Cities of Aztec, Bloomfield and Farmington and the urbanized areas of San Juan County.  The MPO carries out federal laws related to coordinated, continuing, and comprehensive transportation planning.  The MPO, in cooperation with its entities, NMDOT, transit operators, and the general public, develops long and short range transportation plans.

The governing board for the Farmington MPO is the Policy Committee. There are six voting members on the Policy Committee, all elected or appointed officials from the member agencies. Assisting the Policy Committee is a six-member Technical Committee. The Technical Committee members are staff people, knowledgeable in transportation, from each of the member entities.
