Attend NOACA and AMATS Annual Meetings

Our local MPOs (Metropolitan Planning Organizations) are multi-county agencies that handle transportation and environmental planning issues for the area they serve. Most importantly, they decide how federal transportation funds are spent in our area. This includes funds spent on bicycling infrastructure.

The two main agencies in Northeast Ohio are the Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (AMATS), which covers Summit County and Portage County, and the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA), which covers Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, and Medina counties.

Both organizations are holding their annual meetings soon, and the public is invited to attend.

The AMATS Annual Meeting is themed "The Importance of Place" (although the event page on their web site does not list the place where the meeting is being held!).
