Welcome to the Sierra Vista Metropolitan Planning Organization Website

The Sierra Vista Metropolitan Planning Organization (SVMPO) is the designated transportation organization for the southeastern Cochise County region, in Arizona.  We are a policy and planning agency serving the City of Sierra Vista, the Town of Huachuca City and portions of urbanizing Cochise County, in partnership with the Arizona Department of Transportation.  We share information and build consensus among our three-member jurisdictions on regional transportation programs, plans and projects.

  • HUACHUCA CITY AREA ROADWAY INVENTORY & ASSESSMENT UNDERWAY

    January 6, 2021

    The Town of Huachuca City’s General Plan, adopted by the Town residents in 2017, recommended that a Major Streets and Scenic Route Plan be developed for the area.  Rick Engineering Company and the SVMPO are coordinating with Huachuca City and Cochise County to complete a full Roadway Inventory and Assessment for the Huachuca City area. This technical study effort will lead to the prioritization of a local transportation project for future construction.  Area residents are encouraged to submit their concerns and ideas on the SVMPO Contact Us link or through the interactive map and survey for the region’s Long-Range Transportation Plan.

  • SVMPO SHORT-RANGE TRANSIT PLAN COMMENT PERIOD OPEN!

    The SVMPO supports local transit agencies with planning for the next five years of investments in public transit services.  An update to the 2014 transit plan is now underway and will include recommendations for regional connections within the transit systems of all three of the MPO member jurisdictions.  Michael-Baker, with the Gordley Group, are assisting the SVMPO to develop the first transit plan update that includes the expanded MPO area.  The SVMPO and study team are now seeking comments, concerns and ideas from the region’s residents and business owners about their transit needs.  Public input is critical to better understanding what is the most important improvements are needed for our future.  You can provide comments back to us on our interactive map and on-line survey form here. Learn more about the plan here.
