Planning

Designated under federal law as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the RTC is responsible for overseeing the transportation planning process for Southern Nevada. In addition, the RTC directs funding generated from various local, state, and federal funds for transportation purposes.

The MPO is also designated as the core administrator of the Regional Plan, Southern Nevada Strong, through the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition. In this role, the MPO supports the agencies that implement the plan and promotes the plan vision. For more information about the regional plan, go to sns.rtcsnv.com.

Transportation & Regional Planning Committees

RTC Committees develop and make recommendations to the RTC Board on transportation and regional plans and studies, programs, funding, and more. The following standing committees, which meet through regularly scheduled public meetings, focus on transportation and regional planning.  

RTC Board and Committee meetings are open to the public and agendas are publicly noticed and posted. Meeting dates and locations are subject to change if circumstances warrant; final dates and locations are also publicly noticed. 

The public may also raise issues during citizen participation periods. Issues raised in this manner may be placed on a future meeting agenda.
