ABOUT the NARPO

The North Central Alabama Regional Council of Governments (NARCOG) along with the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) sponsors a cooperative rural transportation planning process, which provides a dialogue between local rural elected officials and the ALDOT concerning transportation related issues in our region. The NARPO is comprised of elected officials from Cullman, Lawrence and Morgan counties as well as advisors and technical members such as planners, engineers, and economic development specialists.

The goals of the North Central Alabama Rural Planning Organization are: 1) a well-managed rural transportation planning process; 2) an effective transportation committee structure; 3) a comprehensive data library and distribution source; 4) reports that are useful to the Alabama Department of Transportation and the local governments; and 5) a well-informed Rural Transportation Planning Organization Committee who actively participates in the rural transportation planning process.

This activities of the North Central Alabama Rural Planning Organization are financed in part by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Transit Administration, the Alabama Department of Transportation, and tasked to the North-central Alabama Regional Council of Governments (NARCOG) in fulfillment of requirements set forth in Title 23 USC 134 and 135 (as amended by MAP-21 Sections 1201 and 1202). The contents of this website do not necessarily reflect the official views or policy of the U. S. Department of Transportation. The North Central Alabama Rural Planning Organization is committed to ensuring public participation in the development of all transportation plans and programs. It is the goal of the RPO that the transportation planning process will be accessible, transparent, and inclusive. The RPO is and will be compliant with all Title VI programs, processes, and procedures including, but not limited to, 42 USC 2000d.
