The Delaware-Muncie Metropolitan Plan Commission (DMMPC) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), as designated by the Governor in the 1970’s, for the Muncie Urbanized Area and is charged with carrying out a federally mandated continuing, cooperative and comprehensive transportation planning program that is required in order for Delaware County and its communities to received federal transportation funds. The MPO works with the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to carry out these activities and programs. Since Delaware County was declared a nonattainment area for air quality (ozone) purposes in 2004, the MPO is charged with carrying out additional responsibilities related to Transportation Conformity and works with the above agencies as well as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). Delaware County is now in attainment and is considered a Maintenance Area for air quality purposes but the additional responsibilities remain in effect until 2015, at minimum.
The MPO Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA) is all of Delaware County (excluding the Anderson Urbanized Area which extends into the Daleville area) and a part of Randolph County where the Muncie Urbanized Area extends to Parker City. The area is serviced by State Roads 3, 32, 67, 28, 167 and 332, US 35 and I-69. The DMMPC is responsible for Air Quality Transportation Conformity for all of Delaware County.
The DMMPC is also a metropolitan advisory plan commission created in 1965 to carry out the planning and zoning functions for the City of Muncie and unincorporated Delaware County, Indiana. The Commission makes recommendations to the Muncie City Council and the Delaware County Commissioners on matters dealing with rezonings and ordinance amendments. The Commission has final jurisdiction over subdivision plats, administers the Uniform Numbering System (addressing), assists with floodplain management, provides liaison assistance for the Census Bureau, and assists the City and County Building Commissioners and Zoning Administrators.
