Transportation Planning Organizations (TPOs) were created by Federal law to review and administer all policies and procedures applicable for state and federal transportation funding.
The Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization (SCTPO) provides transportation planning services for the Palm Bay-Melbourne and Titusville urbanized areas, as designated by the U.S. Census Bureau. The SCTPO coordinates transportation plans for the area’s local jurisdictions and transportation authorities including:
- One county: Brevard County Board of County Commissioners
- Brevard County Demographic Profile
- Sixteen cities and towns: Cape Canaveral, Cocoa, Cocoa Beach, Grant-Valkaria, Indialantic, Indian Harbour Beach, Malabar, Melbourne, Melbourne Beach, Melbourne Village, Palm Bay, Palm Shores, Rockledge, Satellite Beach, Titusville, and West Melbourne
- Two airports: Melbourne International and Titusville-Cocoa (TICO)
- One seaport: Port Canaveral
- One spaceport: Cape Canaveral Spaceport (Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station)
What do transportation planners do?
Transportation Planners collect and analyze data from state and local agencies and municipalities and perform traffic modeling to determine transportation patterns and needs.
The responsibility of the SCTPO is to manage a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive planning process, resulting in the development of transportation plans and programs that improve quality of life and add to the economic viability and safety of the community. Public input is sought throughout the planning process at public meetings and workshops.
The SCTPO provides a forum for cooperative decision making by officials of the affected governmental entities with input from citizens and constituency groups. These plans serve as the framework for making transportation investment decisions in Brevard County.
