has been retained by MoDOT to assist MPO’s and RPC’s with developing and implementing a process for creating a prioritized transportation project list as required by the initiative petition

must also address the needs of all modes of transportation. He then reviewed the schedule for
the list. Each MPO and RPC must submit its proposed process to MoDOT by February 28th
Outreach meetings are to be held in February and/or March. By April 30th, each MPO and RPC
