Yuma Metropolitan Planning Organization (YMPO)

YMPO is the leader for coordinating regional transportation and land-use planning with innovative communication and solutions in Yuma County. The jurisdictions that compose the YMPO are: the cities of Yuma, Somerton, and San Luis; Yuma County; the town of Wellton; Cocopah Indian Tribe; and ADOT. The YMPO planning area also includes the Winterhaven community in Imperial County, California, across the Colorado River from the city of Yuma. Although Winterhaven and the Fort Yuma Indian Reservation (Quechan Tribe) are within the YMPO planning boundaries, they are not members of YMPO’s Technical Advisory Committee or the Executive Board. The YMPO area experiences a major influx of winter visitors (snowbirds) and part-time residents each year. Additionally, YMPO experiences border traffic including visitors, laborers, and freight traffic. These factors create unique challenges for the planning, operation, and maintenance of the transportation system.
