Within the Sioux Falls, South Dakota Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA), there exists a federally required and formalized process by which area transportation planning is conducted and transportation policy decisions are made.
The UPWP is a document that describes the annual objectives, work activities/products, and planning studies to be accomplished by the participants of the Sioux Falls metropolitan transportation planning process.
The governmental entities involved in the metropolitan transportation planning process include: the South Eastern Council of Governments (SECOG); the Cities of Brandon, Crooks, Harrisburg, Hartford, Sioux Falls, and Tea; Lincoln and Minnehaha Counties; the South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT); the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA); and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). These entities are responsible for the transportation planning that occurs within the MPA.
The planning work that is conducted and the products that are produced by the entities listed above are used in a formalized local decision-making process to formulate and approve area transportation plans that address the unique challenges of the Sioux Falls MPA. The local process relies on three committees to review and approve products. These committees include: the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC), the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), and the Urbanized Development Commission (UDC) of the South Eastern Council of Governments.
