The Organization

The Killeen-Temple Metropolitan Planning Organization is responsible for establishing a comprehensive transportation planning process for the greater area around Killeen and Temple. The MPO is comprised of a Policy Board and Technical Committee whose members are community and county elected officials or are appointed by those officials. By federal and state law, an MPO must be in operation in every urbanized area with a population over 50,000 people.

The KTMPO Boundary encompasses the following cities: Bartlett, Belton, Copperas Cove, Harker Heights, Holland, Kempner, Killeen, Little River/Academy, Morgan's Point Resort, Nolanville, Rogers, Salado, Temple, and Troy. We cover all of Bell County and parts of Lampasas and Coryell Counties along with portions of Fort Hood.

KTMPO was previously known as the Killeen-Temple Urban Transportation Study (K-TUTS). The Board voted in November 2009 to change the name as part of several amendments to the ByLaws.

Staff offices are located in the Planning and Regional Services Division of the Central Texas Council of Governments (CTCOG) building located at 2180 North Main Street in Belton, Texas. The main phone number for CTCOG is (254) 770-2200.
