Allegany County will no longer be eligible for federal transportation planning assistance following a record 9.3% drop in population from 2010 to 2020. News that the county will no longer be required to be part of the federal Metropolitan Planning Organization was disclosed at a recent meeting of the Allegany County Board of Commissioners. The MPO is a part of the Federal Transit Administration. The loss of MPO status makes the county no longer eligible for certain planning requirements and assistance through the MPO.
