Alaska currently has two State-designated MPOs in Anchorage and Fairbanks. A third MPO will soon be designated by the State in the MatSu Valley north of Anchorage as a result of the 2020 Census.
Fairbanks Area Surface Transportation (FAST) Planning is the MPO in Fairbanks and has been assisting the local governments and tribal entities in MatSu Valley with developing an organizational structure for their new MPO, which is planned to be an independent, Non-Profit Corporation. The next critical step in this process is to hire a fulltime MPO Coordinator to complete the formation of their Non-Profit Corporation and develop that organization’s policies and procedures while concurrently completing the MPO’s Federally-required planning work outlined in their FFY2024 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP). Provided the Non-Profit Corporation has not yet been formed and Fiscal and Personnel Policies have not yet been adopted by the Corporation’s Board of Directors, however, the new MPO cannot hire an employee at this time for the MPO Coordinator position. Therefore, assistance from an outside organization is needed to hire and host this employee during the transition process, which may take six months to a year to complete. Under a Memorandum of Understanding between the Policy Boards of FAST Planning and MatSu Valley Planning (MVP) for Transportation, FAST Planning is offering to hire this employee on behalf of MVP during the transition process. At the completion of the transition process, it is assumed the employee will transfer employment from FAST Planning to MVP to become the Executive Director of the MVP’s new Non-Profit Corporation.
