What is the YMPO?

The Yuma Metropolitan Planning Organization (YMPO) is the leader for coordinating regional transportation and land use planning with innovative communication and solutions. We plan, coordinate, and integrate activities necessary to maintain a comprehensive, cooperative, and continuing multi-agency transportation planning program. Jurisdictions that make up the YMPO are Yuma County, the Cities of Yuma, Somerton, and San Luis, the Town of Wellton, the Cocopah Indian Tribe, and the Arizona State Transportation Board, operating as “Local governments working together.” In addition, one ex-officio, non-voting person representing the Quechan Indian Tribe, the Town of Winterhaven, CA., the California Department of Transportation (CALTRANS), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

How does the YMPO affect you?

The YMPO works with the general public, planning organizations, government agencies, elected officials, and community groups to develop transportation plans. When a project is being developed, your input is important to ensure local transportation issues are addressed and the desires of the community are heard.
