Welcome to the North Carolina Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO)
We are a regional transportation planning organization serving communities in Franklin, Granville, Harnett, Johnston and Wake Counties. Please explore our website for more information on our current plans and projects, upcoming meetings, and long-range planning efforts.
The MPO's Technical Coordinating Committee meets on the first Thursday of each month at 10:00 a.m. The Executive Board meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 4:00 p.m. Occasionally, meetings are held on an alternate date so please check the calendar for the current dates. Agendas and meeting minutes can be found online, usually about a week before the meeting.
What is an MPO?
According to The Federal Aid Highway Act of 1962 areas considered by the Federal Census to be urban in nature with a population of at least 50,000 must have a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive (“3C”) transportaion planning process. In order to receive funding from the federal government in the state of North Carolina, this process is carried out by Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO). Members from each of the MPOs make up the North Carolina Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (NCAMPO). Currently, there are 19 MPOs in North Carolina. -- NC Association of MPOs
