As a result of the 2000 Census, the Hinesville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (HAMPO) was established to address transportation planning within the urbanized portions of Liberty and Long Counties, including Fort Stewart, and the municipalities of Hinesville, Allenhurst, Flemington, Gum Branch, Midway, Riceboro and Walthourville. HAMPO is staffed by the Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission and operates under the leadership of a Policy Committee comprised of elected officials and other decision makers from each participating jurisdiction, the Georgia Department of Transportation, and other state and federal agencies. A Technical Coordinating Committee and Citizens Advisory Committee provides valuable input to the Policy Committee on transportation issues.
The mission of the Hinesville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization is:” To provide the citizens of the HAMPO study area, the traveling public, and the military with a safe, efficient, environmentally sound, and cost effective multimodal transportation system that operates at reasonable levels of service, supports and enhances our economy, promotes our comprehensive development goals, and complements the mission of Fort Stewart.”
Certification: In accordance with the federal requirements of 23CFR 450.334 “…all Metropolitan Planning Areas … the MPO shall certify at least every four (4) years that the metropolitan transportation planning process is being carried out in accordance with all applicable requirements…”. On April 4th, 2016 HAMPO achieved a four year certification as shown on the last page of the report. The report itself documents compliance with the federal requirements:
