MVPO cancels public RTIP meetings

Maumee Valley Planning Organization (MVPO) has cancelled meetings planned as part of its development of a Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) for the counties of Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding, and Williams.

Open house meetings planned for Liberty Center on March 31 and Defiance on April 2 are cancelled due to COVID-19.

The purpose of these meetings was to give members of the public an opportunity to review the draft RTIP document and submit feedback. In lieu of in-person meetings, individuals who wish to review the draft and submit comments may do so by visiting MVPO’s website and utilizing the comment box provided.

Comments can also be submitted to by phone (419-784-3882) or email ([email protected]). The draft RTIP is also available in print and can be requested by contacting Maumee Valley Planning Organization at [email protected] or by phone at 419-784-3882. The draft document will be available for review until April 24, 2020.

The RTIP is a short-range planning document that lists projects in the region with state and federal funding scheduled to be implemented during State Fiscal Years 2021-2024. This document is being developed in coordination with the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) and will be included in the STIP when completed.
