About the RPO


The North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission is the state designated Rural Planning Organization (RPO) serving Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, McKean and Potter Counties.  The RPO, operating via an agreement with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), approves the development and implementation of highways, bridges, transit and other transportation facilities and services.  The Transportation Department establishes the Long-Range Transportation Plan, the Twelve Year Program and the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) through the help of planning partners, the public and businesses in the area.  Many opportunities are provided to the public in order to hear what projects are important to the community.  Please check out the public participation page for information on how to get involved.  Staff is always available to provide transportation-related planning, mapping, and technical assistance throughout the region.



The North Central Pennsylvania transportation system is an integrated system that offers convenient, efficient, effective and safe travel choices for both people and goods, while preserving the character and livability of our communities.
