Regional Long-Range Transportation Plans
Federal regulations require that metropolitan planning organizations develop long-range transportation plans, which must be updated every 4 years. These plans help ensure our roads, bridges, and transportation services (buses, etc.) are ready for the future. Planning helps prioritize projects based on public input and how the region is likely to grow.
Communities in Motion 2050
COMPASS is working on an update to the current long-range transportation plan — Communities in Motion 2040 2.0 — and will extend the horizon year to 2050. Communities in Motion 2050 is scheduled to be complete by December 2022. For more information, contact Liisa Itkonen, 208-475-2241.

Change in Motion Scorecards
COMPASS has been developing annual performance monitoring reports – now called “Change in Motion Scorecards” – since CIM 2030 was first adopted in 2006. The reports evaluate factors to depict progress on meeting goals of Communities in Motion. Click here for more information and links to all Communities in Motion Change in Motion Scorecards.
