The City of New Braunfels Regional Transportation Plan was coordinated with the City of Seguin, the Counties of Comal and Guadalupe, TxDOT and the Alamo Area MPO between 2011 and 2012. The current version of the March 12, 2012 adopted plan can be found here.
The Regional Transportation Plan approved the maximum right-of-way for each road classification. As development is proposed the City Council may adjust the amount of right-of-way needed for sections of roadways based upon analysis provided by the City Engineer. The revised sections approved by City Council can be viewed here.
Metropolitan Planning Organizations
In 1962, the United States Congress passed legislation requiring the formation of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) for all census designated urbanized areas (UZAs) with populations greater than 50,000. MPOs plan and program funding for transportation projects at a regional level. This establishes region-wide plans developed through intergovernmental collaboration, rational analysis, and consensus-based decision making.
As a result of the 2010 Census, the City of New Braunfels achieved the UZA threshold, with a population of 57,740. The City of New Braunfels was included within the Alamo Area MPO boundary (AAMPO).
