The South Western Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is the federally mandated organization designated by the Governor as the forum for cooperative transportation decision-making. The chief elected officials of the South Western Region's eight towns and the directors of the Region's transit districts were designated by Governor William O'Neill on June 30, 1981 as the metropolitan planning organization. The chairman of the South Western Regional Planning Agency serves as a non-voting member.
