Regional Coordination

Contact: Carol Holden

The SCTPO maintains active membership in local, regional, and state planning organizations. Coordination among similar organizations assists with identification of project priorities, best practices, and regional needs and opportunities.

The SCTPO participates in the Transportation Disadvantaged Local Coordinating Board (TDLCB) and annually appoints the TDLCB Chairman. The TDLCB works to ensure transportation opportunities are available for all residents, regardless of age, ability, or economic status.

The Community Traffic Safety Team is a group of local highway safety advocates who are committed to solving traffic safety problems through a comprehensive approach. Members include law enforcement, fire officials, government agencies, business and industry representatives and local citizens. Download the 2015 CTST Meeting Calendar.

The Central Florida Metropolitan Planning Organization Alliance (CFMPOA) is an association of transportation and government organizations who meet quarterly to review transportation issues and opportunities affecting the Central Florida region. The CFMPOA develops a list of Regional Transit Priorities, Regional Strategic Intermodal Systems Project Priorities, and Regional Trail Priorities.

The Metropolitan Planning Organization Advisory Council (MPOAC) is a statewide transportation planning and policy organization created by the Florida Legislature. The MPOAC assists in the transportation planning process by serving as the principal forum for collective policy discussions.

The SCTPO also participated in the East Central Florida Corridor Task Force. The 13-member task force was charged with identifying and providing solutions for the anticipated future development patterns and associated mobility and connectivity needs in portions of Brevard, Orange, and Osceola Counties.

Certification

Contact: Georganna Gillette

The SCTPO participates in an annual self-certification of its planning process with representatives from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Five Office. Approximately every four years, the SCTPO is certified in a more lengthy evaluation process conducted by representatives from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and FDOT. The last Federal Certification Review was held on July 10, 2014.

Final Certification Report October 2014

Complete Streets

Complete Streets are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and transit riders of all ages and abilities must be able to safely move along and across a complete street. The SCTPO has been actively supporting Complete Streets in Brevard County since 2010.

Bicycle/Pedestrian/Trails Mobility Plan

Contact: Sarah Kraum

The SCTPO recognizes the growing importance of bicycle and pedestrian accessibility, mobility and safety to the region’s economic vitality, sense of community identity, and quality of life. Bicycle and pedestrian transportation offers an economical and healthy way for people of all ages and abilities to access their destinations, enjoy Brevard County’s outstanding natural resources and connect with friends, family and neighbors.

In 2013, The SCTPO developed a Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Mobility Plan (19 MB pdf) that establishes a planning framework toward development of a true multimodal transportation network. The plan focuses on regionally significant projects that provide connectivity and accessibility to Brevard County’s abundant natural resources, parks, economic centers, and intermodal hubs such as existing Space Coast Area Transit transfer points and future East Coast Railway stations. The plan therefore emphasizes the following regional connections:

The SCTPO is currently updating their Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan to reflect current conditions, improvements, and plans for the bicycle, pedestrian, and trail network of Brevard County.  Public Workshops are expected to held in Winter 2019.  The plan is expected to be complete in Fall 2019.  To stay up to date please visit the project web page.
