Welcome . . .
Since 1974, West Central Indiana Economic Development District (WCIEDD) has served as designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the West Central Indiana Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA). Currently the planning area includes the: City of Terre Haute, Town of West Terre Haute, Town of Seelyville both the urbanized and rural portions of Vigo County, City of Brazil, and the urbanized portions of Clay County.
In 1962, Congress passed legislation that mandated the formation of
MPOs in all urbanized areas with a population greater than 50,000.
The intent of this action was to ensure existing and future federal
expenditures for transportation projects and programs are based on a
continuing, cooperative and comprehensive (3-C) planning process
that encourages and promotes the safe and efficient development,
management, and operation of the multimodal transportation network.
This network is made up of an integrated system of roadways,
highways, transit facilities and services, accessible pedestrian
walkways, bicycle transportation facilities, etc. that are designed
to meet the mobility needs of people and freight, foster economic
growth and development, and minimize transportation related fuel
consumption and air pollution.
WCIEDD is one of 14 MPOs in the State of Indiana.
