Maumee Valley Planning Organization (MVPO) is the Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RTPO) for the counties of Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding and Williams. MVPO is currently updating the organization’s long-range transportation plan, Moving Together 2045.

The long-range transportation plan is a multi-modal, comprehensive plan meant to serve as a blueprint for how the five-county region wants the transportation system to improve over time. The plan is updated every five year sand will be completed in 2020 with a horizon year of 2045.

MVPO is requesting that residents of Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding and Williams counties take the public survey in order to contribute their feedback to the plan. The public survey will gather feedback on current transportation related problems and future transportation needs. It is crucial the public provides their feedback, so the plan can reflect what the transportation needs are for the five-county region.

The survey will be open from March 1 until May 1. The survey is available online at www.mvpo.org/mt2045. Paper copies are also available at local libraries and upon request at MVPO. Contact MVPO at mvpo@mvpo.org or 419-784-3882 to request a paper survey.
