The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for the Collier Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) documents transportation planning and transportation related planning activities. The purpose of the UPWP is to ensure that a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive (3C) approach to planning for transportation needs is maintained and properly coordinated with other jurisdictions and MPO’s, the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council (SWFRPC) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
The UPWP is a planning document that identifies and describes the MPO’s budget, planning activities, studies, and technical support expected to be undertaken in a two-year period. It also lists the funding source(s) for each task and specifies whether the task(s) will be conducted by MPO staff, consultants or county agencies. It is a fiscally constrained document based on programmed planning grants and local contributions.
The UPWP may be revised as needed after adoption. Revisions fall into two categories – modifications and amendments – with each category requiring different actions by FDOT, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).
Modifications are revisions that:
- Do not change the FHWA approved planning (PL) budget or
- Do not change the scope of a FHWA funded work task(s) or
- Do not add or delete a work task(s)
Amendments are revisions that:
- Change the FHWA approved PL budget or
- Change the scope of a FHWA funded work task(s) or
- Add or delete a work task(s)
