NIRCC is the agency designated by the Governor to perform general purpose planning on a regional basis for Adams, Allen, DeKalb, and Wells Counties. NIRCC coordinates with other planning efforts to maximize benefits to the respective communities. NIRCC provides regional transportation planning services for both rural and urban communities within its jurisdiction. NIRCC is also heavily involved in various community development programs, both in the planning and implementation stages.
As the Metropolitan Planning Organization, NIRCC performs the transportation planning functions for the urbanized area of Allen County including the Cities of Fort Wayne and New Haven, and the Towns of Grabill, Huntertown, and Leo-Cedarville. The multi-modal transportation planning efforts include systems for highway, transit, bicycle and pedestrian travel. NIRCC performs studies through traffic monitoring and surveillance programs which gather vital information and report on traffic volumes, intersection flow, accident analysis, travel time, travel delay, capacity assessment, highway and transit demand forecasting, and site impact analysis.
These activities support the development and maintenance of the long-range transportation plan, congestion management program, and transportation capital improvement program. These multi-modal plans and programs are designed to improve the safety, accessibility, and mobility of people and freight throughout the metropolitan region. In addition, the plans and programs are implemented to support the economic vitality of the region, protect and enhance the environment, preserve the existing transportation system, and to improve the region's overall quality of life.
