The NOACA policy requires Project Planning Review (PPR) for all new projects being added to the Transportation Plan and/or Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). PPR is also required for projects that undergo a change of scope or a cost increase greater than 20 percent.
The following project information is available for review:
PRR is a comprehensive process and normally takes three months to complete. View the current schedule for specific dates.
- Staff Review
NOACA staff reviews each project application for completeness and accuracy. Staff will then offer comments with regard to the ten transportation goals of the regional Transportation Plan, Connections+ 2035.
- Committee Review
Staff comments are distributed to NOACA committees and councils for further review and comment. After a period of review and discussion, the committees make their recommendations to the Governing Board.
- Intergovernmental Review and Consultation (IGRC)
NOACA encourages governmental organizations and communities to review and comment on proposed projects. If you represent a governmental entity and would like to comment on a project, please e-mail us or call 216-241-2414 x283.
- Public Involvement
NOACA welcomes comments from the public about proposed projects. The public review period lasts until the Governing Board makes a decision about them.
- Governing Board Review/Consideration
Only after the full review process is finished does the Governing Board resolve that Project Planning Review is complete. This action allows the project to be added to NOACA’s long-range Transportation Plan. This is a requirement for a project being added to the Transportation Improvement Program, which is NOACA’s four-year capital budget.
