Fayetteville Area Metropolitan
Planning Organization

The Fayetteville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO) was established in 1975 as a result of the Federal Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1973. Any Urbanized Area (UZA) with a population greater than 50,000 is designated as an MPO. Any UZA greater that 200,000 is also designated as a Transportation Management Area (TMA). The Fayetteville MPO is also a TMA. The Census Bureau establishes UZA boundaries. For the past thirty years, the FAMPO Planning Area included the City of Fayetteville, the Towns of Hope Mills and Spring Lake, Fort Bragg Military Reservation, Pope Army Airfield, the urban portion of Cumberland County, and a portion of Harnett County. After the 2010 census, the Planning Area was expanded and now includes portions of Cumberland County, Harnett County, Hoke County, and Robeson County, for a total Planning Area population of approximately 372,000.

All decisions of the MPO are made by the Transportation Policy Board (TPB) with recommendations from the Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) and the Technical Coordinating Committee (TCC). The membership and voting structures of these committees are established through a Memorandum of Understanding between all of the participating governments for the TPB and TCC and through bylaws adopted by the TPB for the CAC. For more information, view the organizational structure or the transportation planning process of the MPO.
