Mission & Vision
While the Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach MPOs always maintained cooperative working relationships with each other, their alliance solidified when the 2000 Census data was released defining the tri-county area as the “Miami Urbanized Area.” Then in 2005, recognizing the need for increased regional transportation planning and coordination balanced with the need and desire to maintain localized transportation planning, the three MPOs created the Southeast Florida Transportation Council (SEFTC). This partnership was formalized through an lnterlocal Agreement.
Since its inception, SEFTC has approved:
Regional goals and objectives
Regional corridors of significance criteria
Regional long range transportation plan
Project lists for Transportation Regional Incentive Program (TRIP) funding
The following language is an excerpt from the SEFTC Interlocal Agreement pertaining to the purpose and intent of the Council:
WHEREAS, the economic health of the region is greatly affected by availability and convenience of transportation services; and,
WHEREAS, there is a need to address transportation on a regional basis to meet growing travel demands and obtain federal and state funding in the current competitive process; and,
WHEREAS, Chapter 339,175(i)(2), F.S. provides for creation of an administrative entity to coordinate regional transportation planning goals and activities consistent with federal and state law; and,
