Created in 1992, the Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO) was designated after the 1990 Census and has a planning area that includes the City of Fredericksburg, and the counties of Spotsylvania and Stafford. FAMPO serves as a regional partnership among the United States Department of Transportation, Virginia Department of Transportation, Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, transit agencies, local elected leadership, local planning and public works directors, the business community, and citizens in the planning area.
FAMPO is responsible for creating, developing and reviewing transportation plans, which includes a 25 year Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), a 4 year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), an annual Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), a Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan (BPP), and a Public Participation Plan (PPP). All of these documents work together to identify transportation programs, funding alternatives and projects. FAMPO’s transportation plans and programs are reviewed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). Along with transportation planning, FAMPO devotes time and effort toward future development, community enhancement, and improving the quality of life within the Fredericksburg regional area.
