Lake Havasu Metropolitan Planning Organization
The mission of the Lake Havasu Metropolitan Planning Organization is to provide open leadership and guidance for regional transportation planning through a cooperative effort that will result in a practical and positive growth model beneficial to residents, visitors and businesses.
The 2010 United States Census indicated that Lake Havasu City had surpassed the 50,000 population threshold thus requiring the establishment of a MPO. On January 8, 2013, the Lake Havasu City Council adopted Resolution Number 13-2697 approving the establishment of the Lake Havasu Metropolitan Planning Organization (LHMPO) and Resolution Number 13-2698 establishing the boundaries of LHMPO. All MPO documents were forwarded to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) for review and processing. On March 26, 2013, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer sent a formal letter to the Federal Highway Administration requesting establishment of the Lake Havasu Metropolitan Planning Organization.
To keep LHMPO costs low, Lake Havasu City acts as the fiduciary agent and provide LHMPO office space at the Lake Havasu City - City Hall building.
