Presentation Topics

Mobility 2045 Update (PDF)
One of the primary responsibilities of a Metropolitan Planning Organization is the
development and maintenance of a Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). NCTCOG staff has initiated the development of an update to the current MTP, Mobility 2045, and will provide an overview and update on the timeline for the Plan.
 
Freight Safety Campaign (PDF)
The goals for this year’s freight safety campaign include educating heavy-duty vehicle operators about following regional truck lane restrictions, informing the public about safe driving practices near large commercial vehicles, and reducing freight-related accidents. Staff will present details on this campaign.
 
Local Government Energy Reporting (PDF)
Political subdivisions in ozone nonattainment or “affected” counties in Texas are required to reduce their electric consumption by five percent each year and report their annual electricity consumption to the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO). This presentation will provide an overview of the local government energy reporting requirements, NCTCOG resources and trainings, and important reminders regarding the upcoming 2021 Local Government Energy Reports.
