Executive Board

You are here: About YMPO | Executive Board

The Executive Board acts as a policy body coordinating and directing transportation planning, with implementation of related activities within the overall regional comprehensive planning process. There are ten elected or appointed officials with three from the City of Yuma, two from the Yuma County, one from each of the following including the City of San Luis, City of Somerton, the Town of Wellton, the Cocopah Indian Tribe. The State Transportation Board (STB) Member for District 6 is also an official member of the YMPO Executive Board. However, the STB member usually requests the District Engineer for the ADOT Southwest District (located here in Yuma) to represent them.
