The Florida-Alabama Transportation Planning Organization is the local, intergovernmental transportation policy board for Escambia and Santa Rosa counties in Florida and Orange Beach and the community of Lillian in Alabama. The board is comprised of local government officials who make decisions regarding transportation at a regional level. The Florida-
Alabama TPO is required by state and federal law to establish a cooperative, comprehensive, and continuing planning process. The TPO also works to increase safety, security, accessibility, mobility, and connectivity for people and goods.
In addition to the TPO board, the Florida-Alabama TPO has a Technical Coordinating Committee, a Citizen Advisory Committee, and a Freight Advisory Working Group. The TCC is made up of local government staff and other stakeholders. Their knowledge of local projects and issues allow the members of the TCC to provide technical advice to the TPO board. The CAC is comprised of members of the general public who express an interest in transportation planning. Prospective members complete an application and must be approved by the committee and the TPO board. The Freight Advisory Working Group provides a forum for open dialogue where the freight community can gain insight into the TPO’s decisions and upcoming projects and provide much needed industry input to decision makers regarding freight transportation priorities and expenditures. For more information about the Florida-Alabama TPO, please contact staff at 850-332-7976.

The Technical Coordinating Committee meets at 8:30 a.m. on the Monday before the TPO meets. The Citizen Advisory Committee meets at 3 p.m. on the Tuesday before the TPO meets.
The TPO provides an opportunity for the public to comment at each meeting during public forum.
