Public Notices

Federal law requires MPOs to identify a Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA) boundary based on their Urbanized Area (UA) after the most recent decennial census. The MPA for the MPO must include the UA boundary as well as land area that will become urban within the next 20 years. Where appropriate, adjustments/smoothing can be made to reflect the most comprehensive boundary to foster an effective transportation planning process. The proposed Burlington-Graham Metropolitan Planning Organization (BGMPO) smoothed UA and MPA  boundary maps are available for review on our website at  The maps are also available upon request and can be viewed at the City of Burlington Department of Transportation and Public Works, 234 E. Summit Avenue, Burlington NC.   Written comments can be emailed to  or sent to PO Box 1358, Burlington, NC 27215 until the end of the public comment period on December 1, 2023.
