PPR Process

PRR is a comprehensive process and normally takes three months to complete. View the current schedule for specific dates.

  • BusinChesterCorridorStaff Review
    NOACA staff reviews each project application for completeness and accuracy. Staff will then offer comments with regard to the NOACA Strategic Plan (Going Forward, Together) goals and Long-Range Transportation Plan, AIM Forward 2040.
  • 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 Board of Directors.
  • 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 email us or call 216-241-2414, x285.
  • Public Involvement
    NOACA welcomes comments from the public about proposed projects. We would appreciate it if you include your city of residence, although it is not required. The public review period lasts until the Board of Directors makes a decision about them.
  • Board of Directors Review/Consideration
    Only after the full review process is finished does the Board of Directors 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.
