BIC Gas Tax VideoSince 1974, West Central Indiana Economic Development District (WCIEDD) has served as the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Terre Haute Vigo County Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA).  Currently the planning area, which encompasses 403.3 sq. miles, includes the City of Terre Haute, Town of West Terre Haute, Town of Seelyville and both the urbanized and rural portions of Vigo County.  

In 1962, Congress passed legislation that mandated the formation of MPOs in all urbanized areas with a population greater than 50,000.  The intent of this action was to ensure existing and future federal expenditures for transportation projects and programs are based on a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive (3-C) planning process that encourages and promotes the safe and efficient development, management, and operation of the surface transportation system.  This multimodal transportation network is made up of an integrated system of roadways, highways, transit facilities and services, accessible pedestrian walkways, bicycle transportation facilities, etc. that are designed to meet the mobility needs of people and freight, foster economic growth and development, and minimize transportation related fuel consumption and air pollution.   

The Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) serves as the top level policy and decision making body for the MPO.  This committee is made up of elected or appointed local government officials who represent the five jurisdictions served by the MPO, representatives of various transportation modes, and representatives of the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).  The MPO staff and representatives of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) serve as non-voting advisors to the committee.  The Transportation Technical Committee (TTC) also advises the TPC on technical matters and provides an important link between project planning and project implementation.  The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and the public are afforded opportunities to provide input and feedback about programs and projects as part of the TPC decision making process.  

WCIEDD is one of 14 MPOs in the State of Indiana.
