Unified Planning Work Program


On June 20, 2013, the Policy Committee approved the FFY2014-2015 UPWP that outlines planning activities and the MPO budget for the next two fiscal years, effective as of October 1, 2013.  On January 16, 2014 the Policy Committee amended the FFY2014-2015 UPWP budget to reflect FY2013 carryover and final Work Authorization amounts.  On March 10, 2014 the Policy Committee amended the UPWP budget to revise PL funds for the remainder of FFY2014.

Annual List of Federally Obligated Projects

At the end of the federal fiscal year, the Farmington MPO is required to publish an annual list of federally obligated projects.  The FFY2013 Annual List of Federally Obligated Projects identifies all transportation projects that received federal funding between October 1, 2012 and September 30, 2013.


Title VI Plan

The Title VI Plan for the Farmington MPO assures that no person shall on the grounds of race, color, national origin, gender, age, or disability be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any FMPO program, activity, or service.  The FMPO Title VI Plan identifies how Title VI requirements will apply to MPO documents and the public participation process.  It also outlines the process for reporting and filing a Title VI complaint.


MPO Major Thoroughfare Plan

The purpose of the proposed MPO Major T-Plan is to provide a safe, convenient, and efficient regional transportation network that is adequate to serve local and regional transportation needs. The regional plan establishes the framework for the acquisition, preservation, and protection of existing and future rights-of-way from building encroachment.  The MPO adopted the Major T-Plan in September 2010. The Policy Committee amended the MPO Major T-Plan on August 7, 2012 to reflect revisions made to the City of Farmington Major T-Plan.



Access Management

The MPO adopted the access management plan on January 8, 2009.  The plan provides useful techniques for preserving capacity of regional roadways, improving safety, and controlling access points along corridors while ensuring that roads function the way they are intended.

The Access Management Plan was adopted:
  • Policy Committee on January 8, 2009.
  • City of Farmington on February 10, 2009.
  • City of Aztec on February 14, 2009.
  • San Juan County on February 17, 2009.
  • City of Bloomfield on February 23, 2009.



Road Network Inventory

The road network inventory was created to make one database of all of the significant roads in the MPO.  This includes all roads where traffic counts are conducted plus any roads with functional classifications that are "collector" and above.



MPO Socioeconomic Data

The MPO gathered population and employment data that was used to determine base year and projected future population and employment figures.  The entire MPO is divided into traffic analysis zones (TAZ), which are geographic areas characterized by similar land uses.  Each TAZ has population and employment data based on those land uses.
