The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) cooperates and consults continually with local officials and tribal governments in areas of the state that are not served by Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs). The central office in Madison and each of the five transportation regions have worked hard to develop and maintain strong relationships with local and tribal governments within Wisconsin.
Federal regulations define the state’s responsibilities for cooperation and consultation with local officials and tribal governments in areas not served by MPOs. In response to the regulations, the Documentation of Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Process of Cooperation and Consultation with Local Officials and Tribal Governments in Non-Metropolitan Areas highlights successful practices throughout Wisconsin. Additionally, the document provides a description of the cooperative steps in the local process for select WisDOT plans and programs. Finally, it outlines the steps we will take for future updates.
