Planning the future of transportation in the Jacksonville urban area

The Jacksonville Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (JUMPO) is the regional transportation planning agency for the New River region of southeastern North Carolina. JUMPO is composed of officials from the City of Jacksonville, Onslow County, and area military installations as well as the North Carolina Board of Transportation. JUMPO facilitates a cooperative, comprehensive and continuing transportation planning process that serves as the basis for the expenditure of all federal transportation funds in the area for streets, highways, bridges, public transit, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities.


Comments Requested on Public Participation Plan Update 

The MPO has developed policies, procedures, and techniques to ensure opportunities for participation by the public in the metropolitan planning process. The Public Participation Plan provides the framework for the public to have reasonable opportunities be involved. The Plan has been updated to make better use of social media, ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and to make it easier to use. The Plan's 45-day public comment period is from May 15 to June 30. Please contact Peggy Holland, Senior Transportation Planner by email or by calling 910-938-5073 with your comments!
