The Okaloosa-Walton Transportation Planning Organization is the local, intergovernmental transportation policy board for Okaloosa County and Walton County. The board is comprised of local government officials who make decisions regarding transportation at a regional level. The Okaloosa-Walton 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 Okaloosa-Walton TPO has a Technical Coordinating Committee and a Citizen Advisory Committee. 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. For more information about the Okaloosa-Walton TPO, please contact staff at 850-332-7976.
