Welcome to the Morgantown Monongalia Metropolitan Planning Organization (MMMPO) website! We are a transportation planning organization dedicated to improving the region's transportation system. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the MPO and our transportation planning efforts. Our MPO is responsible for producing two important planning documents: Metropolitan Transportation Plan and Transportation Improvement Program. 

What is a Metropolitan Planning Organization?

Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). The MPO develops and updates MTP to include projects that reflect the transportation facility needs in the community.   

Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). TIP is a comprehensive four-year regional spending plan for near-term transportation projects, programs, and investment priorities. See the TIP Project Map here.

COMMUNITY GARDEN APPLICATION & SCORING

--- Cooperative Agreement

--- Helpful Links for a Sustainable Community Garden  

     The WVDOH is preparing to improve Greenbag Road by widening the road, adding sidewalk, and installing roundabouts at two poorly performing intersections. Because this project will eliminate an existing community garden that serves the residents of the surrounding area, the City of Morgantown and the MMMPO are working together on a project to provide a better garden amenity. 

     The WVDOH will provide $15,000 to be distributed to at least three (3) community organizations, Public Consortium (HOA or Similar), or groups who will be awarded up to $5,000 to meet the goals provided. Community organizations, Public Consortium (HOA or Similar), and groups are welcome to apply for smaller grant amounts, allowing for the creation of more than three (3) gardens. For example, there could be five (5) organizations awarded $3,000 each, $5,000 is the maximum that can be awarded per organization. The deadline was March 11th, 2024, and has now been extended to April 22nd, 2024.
