Clark County-Springfield Transportation Coordinating Committee

The TCC is the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for transportation in Clark County, Ohio as designated by the Ohio Department of Transportation acting in behalf of the Governor in accordance with federal law. The TCC is composed of local elected and appointed officials, transportation professionals, and citizen members. The TCC reviews and approves plans and programs involving expenditures of federal-aid transportation funds in Clark County. As the MPO, the TCC must fulfill the requirements of the planning regulations for the Clark County - Springfield area to maintain eligibility for Federal highway and transit funds through the Ohio Department of Transportation. This includes planning for a multi-modal transportation system. The extensive multi-use trail system in Clark County is in part a result of this dedication to planning for a multi-modal transportation network.
