The RVMPO Policy Committee meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month, unless canceled for lack of agenda items. Meetings normally begin at 2:00 p.m. and are currently held at the Rogue Valley Council of Governments’ Jefferson Conference Room, 155 N. 1st Street, Central Point. At these meetings current transportation issues are discussed and status reports on transportation studies and projects are given. After these discussions are completed, policy actions are taken that include adoption of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), revision to these documents, or the Rogue Valley Regional Transportation Plan (RV RTP), and adoption of resolutions related to current transportation issues.
The RVMPO Policy Committee makes difficult decisions in a cooperative manner. However, the Policy Committee’s responsibilities do not begin and end with making decisions. Policy Committee members are ultimately responsible to the residents of the region for the quality of transportation services and for the impact of transportation on their overall quality of life. This means that Policy Committee members share the responsibility for making sure that major transportation issues of today and tomorrow are dealt with fairly and properly.
