Boards & Committees

Transportation Planning Organization(TPO)

The Polk TPO Board provides a forum for cooperative decision making regarding countywide transportation issues.  Member governments include the Polk County Board of County Commissioners and the cities of Lakeland, Winter Haven Auburndale, Bartow, Haines City, Lake Wales, Fort Meade, Mulberry, Frostproof, Lake Alfred, Dundee, Eagle Lake, Davenport, Polk City, and Lake Hamilton.  The agency is comprised of a policy board (local elected officials), advisory committees and staff.  

Prior to making decisions, the Polk TPO Board receives recommendations from the citizens-driven Adviser Network and the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC).

With these committees acting in an advisory capacity, there is a greater level of assurance the transportation decisions being made are technically viable and in line with public opinion.
