Adopted on December 11, 2014, MOBILITY 2040 is the Long Range Transportation Plan prepared by the Pasco County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). It is a comprehensive, multimodal “blueprint” aimed at meeting the transportation needs of Pasco County and the incorporated cities/towns of Dade City, New Port Richey, Port Richey, San Antonio, Zephyrhills, and St. Leo over the next 25 years.
MOBILITY 2040 has been developed consistent with the Comprehensive Plans of the County and the six incorporated cities, which identify the goals, objectives, and policies that guide future growth in Pasco County. As a multimodal transportation plan, MOBILITY 2040 considers not only needed road improvements, but also public transportation, bicycle, pedestrian, freight, and other transportation projects.
MOBILITY 2040 relied heavily on input from the public to help identify and prioritize multimodal transportation projects in the development of the plan. Additionally, MOBILITY 2040:
-Recognizes the inextricable tie between land use and transportation.
- Supports the economic development goals of Pasco County.
-Supports regional coordination and collaboration.
-Places emphasis on maintenance and preservation of the existing transportation system.
-Looks to provide safe, convenient, and accessible transportation options for all.
-Analyzes and weighs the potential social, economic, and environmental impacts and benefits of the plan.
- Is consistent with all applicable federal and State planning requirements.
-Is a performance-based plan that establishes metrics to monitor and evaluate the MOBILITY 2040 goals and objectives.
-Provides a fiscally-constrained financial plan based on existing and anticipated future revenues that will help address transportation needs through 2040.
