The Farmington Metropolitan Planning Organization (FMPO) coordinates transportation planning work in the cities of Aztec, Bloomfield, Farmington, and the surrounding communities of San Juan County, New Mexico.  The FMPO's 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan is currently being developed and will identify regional transportation priorities and projects to work in concert with state and federal transportation planning efforts. 

The Farmington MPO recently developed the new FFY 2016-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).

Specific Statutory and Regulatory Requirements

The metropolitan planning statutes state that the long-range transportation plan and TIP must include a "financial plan" that "indicates resources from public and private sources that are reasonably expected to be available to carry out the program" [23 U.S.C. 134(g)(2)(B) and 134(h)(2)(B)(ii)]. These regulations provide, in essence, that a long-range transportation plan and TIP can include only projects for which funding "can reasonably be expected to be available" [23 CFR 450.322(b)(11) (metropolitan long-range transportation plan), 23 CFR 450.324(e) (TIP), and 23 CFR 450.216(a)(5)(STIP)].

Basic Purpose of Fiscal Constraint
The fiscal constraint requirement is intended to ensure that metropolitan long-range transportation plans, TIPs, and STIPs reflect realistic assumptions about future revenues, rather than being lists that include many more projects than could realistically be completed with available revenues. Given this basic purpose, compliance with the fiscal constraint requirement entails an analysis of revenues and costs.
