Tri-County Transportation & Land Use Study

Coordinated Planning for Regional Mobility & Prosperity

The Tri-County Transportation & Land Use Study was a first of its kind effort in our region to bring local governments, citizens, and businesses together across jurisdictional boundaries to talk about significant growth issues. The effort, completed in 2012, created a forum for local leaders in the counties of Robertson, Sumner, and Wilson to consider the growth plans of their neighboring communities in an effort to improve their own - all for the sake of regional mobility and prosperity. The MPO used the effort to generate ideas for the regional transportation plan. Local governments have been using the effort to develop or improve upon their own comprehensive plans.

Public Workshop Recap

The MPO and local community planners conducted public workshops in December 2009 to give citizens a look at future growth and development across Robertson, Sumner and Wilson Counties, and to weigh in on preferences for how that growth should occur in order to support quality-of-life.
