Posted: Tue, January 29, 2019

The Transportation Policy Board of Regional Planning Affiliation 1 (RPA-1) in northeast Iowa is pleased to announce the call for applications for Iowa’s Transportation Alternatives Program (Iowa’s TAP) and Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) Program for diverse transportation projects in our region and communities. Iowa’s TAP and STBG are federal funding programs that require a 20% local match. Eligible STBG road and bridge projects may be swapped for state funding through Iowa DOT’s Swap Program.

Prospective applicants are reminded that all projects eligible for Iowa’s TAP funding are also eligible for STBG funding.

Eligible applicants include all public agencies and local governments within RPA-1 that have jurisdiction over public rights-of-way for transportation (including walking and bicycling facilities); public transportation agencies; and agencies with transportation planning responsibilities. RPA-1 includes the Counties of Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek and the public agencies and local governments with jurisdictions therein.

The current application cycle is for funding in federal fiscal year (FFY) 2023. RPA-1 is expected to have approximately $2.7 million in STBG and $171,000 in Iowa’s TAP available for distribution. Applications for both programs are due February 28, 2019.

Visit UERPC's Transportation page (link below) to find the STBG project application and instructions as well as the TAP application and separate instructions and priority criteria sheet.

Contact Aaron Detter with any questions about eligibility at 563-382-6171 or adetter@uerpc.org, or contact any member of the RPA-1 Technical Committee with specific road or street project questions (contact info included in attached STBG instructions).

Posted: Tue, September 25, 2018

Allamakee County is partnering with Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission (UERPC) to develop a new comprehensive plan for the County. Dubbed All In Allamakee, or the "All-In Plan" for short, the plan will consider a host of issues and topics that affect quality of life in the County, ranging from public infrastructure and housing to parks and transportation.

There are three upcoming community workshops for the All-In Plan that will be held in Postville, Lansing, and Waukon. At these workshops, attendees will help create a countywide vision for Allamakee County’s future through interactive community visioning activities. All residents of Allamakee County, as well as those who visit or work in the county, are invited and encouraged to attend

All workshops begin at 5:00 p.m. and will last about an hour and a half. There will be a brief presentation at the start followed by interactive activities. Members of the public are free to come and go at any time during the meeting, even if they miss the beginning. Light refreshments will be provided. The schedule for the three community meetings is below.

     • Postville: Tuesday, October 9th at UERPC offices, 134 West Greene Street
     • Lansing: Wednesday, October 10th at the Driftless Area Education and Visitor Center, 1944 Columbus Road
     • Waukon: Thursday, October 25th at the Senior Center at Waukon Wellness Center, 1220 3rd Avenue NW

Additionally, all residents of Allamakee County and those who visit or work in the county are invited and encouraged to give feedback on a broad array of issues by completing an online survey and a quick questionnaire.

Community Survey: www.tinyurl.com/yd69ng8w

Public invited to community meetings

Public invited to community meetings for 5-county Long-Range Transportation Plan

Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission (UERPC) has begun development of an update to the Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) for the region consisting of Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek Counties in northeast Iowa. The Iowa Department of Transportation requires that our region’s LRTP be updated every five years. The current plan was adopted by the Upper Explorerland Transportation Policy Board in March of 2014.

The LRTP has a 20-year planning horizon and is intended to guide transportation investments in the five-county region in support of a transportation system that is safe for all modes and users, and that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods. The plan includes a description of the region's existing conditions; identifies current transportation challenges; anticipates potential future needs; and explores various strategies for addressing those challenges and needs.

To ensure that the LRTP reflects the priorities and goals of the people who live in and visit our region, the public is invited to participate and give feedback in various ways. Community workshops have been scheduled in each of the five counties in the coming weeks. Residents of the region may attend any of the workshops, regardless of where they live.

All workshops begin at 5:00 p.m. and will last about an hour and a half. There will be a brief presentation at the start followed by interactive feedback activities. Members of the public are free to come and go at any time during the meeting, even if they miss the beginning. The schedule of community meetings is below.

  • Cresco: Monday, September 10th at NICC Cresco Center, Room 102, 1020 2nd Avenue SE
  • Fayette: Wednesday, September 12th at UIU Student Center, 2nd floor, Student Life Conference Room, 603 Washington Street
  • Calmar: Thursday, September 13th at NICC Wilder Business Center, Room 106, 1625 Highway 150 S
  • Elkader: Thursday, September 27th at Clayton County Office Facility, 600 Gunder Road NE
  • Waukon: Thursday, October 4th at the Senior Center at Waukon Wellness Center, 1220 3rd Avenue NW

 

All residents of the five counties, as well as those who visit this area, are invited and encouraged to complete an online survey about transportation in our region. Survey responses are anonymous and the more people that complete it, the stronger and more representative of the region the final plan will be.

The survey can be accessed at www.tinyurl.com/ybfo4epe. Information on the LRTP, as well as a link to the survey, are also available on UERPC’s website, www.uerpc.org.

Those interested in being notified of updates and events related to the LRTP, and anyone wishing to request a paper copy of the survey, may contact Aaron Detter at adetter@uerpc.org or 563-382-6171.

Allamakee County Comprehensive Plan

Posted: Tue, July 31, 2018

All In Allamakee: Allamakee County’s Comprehensive Plan

Allamakee County is partnering with Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission to develop a new comprehensive plan for the County. Dubbed All In Allamakee, or the "All-In Plan" for short, the plan will consider a host of issues related to economic development, housing, transportation, parks, infrastructure, etc., all of which have an impact on residents' quality of life.

The All-In Plan will be in development through the rest of 2018 and much of 2019. During this time there will be several opportunities for residents to get involved. Public meetings will be held in Lansing, Waukon, and Postville where attendees will help create a countywide vision for Allamakee County’s future. Later in the process, topic-specific focus groups will be held to help create goals and strategies to achieve that vision.

Residents and visitors to Allamakee County are invited to complete a very brief questionnaire on how they feel about Allamakee County. We also invite and encourage all residents and visitors of Allamakee County to give input on a broader array of issues in Allamakee County by taking a more detailed survey. Visit the web addresses below to fill out the brief questionnaire and take the survey.

Finally, we invite Twitter and Instagram users to tweet and share photos of everything you love about Allamakee County by using #AllInAllamakee. We may contact you for permission to use your tweet or photo in the final plan!

Call for Applications for Multimodal Transportation Grants

Posted: Wed, January 12, 2022

The Transportation Policy Board of Regional Planning Affiliation 1 (RPA-1) in northeast Iowa is pleased to announce the call for applications for Iowa’s Transportation Alternatives Program (Iowa’s TAP) and Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) funding for diverse transportation projects in our region and communities.

Eligible projects for Iowa’s TAP funding include construction of walking and bicycling infrastructure such as sidewalks, ADA-compliant curb ramps, bicycle facilities, and paved multi-use trails, as well as certain community improvement and environmental mitigation activities. STBG funding can be used for all of the previously mentioned Iowa’s TAP eligible projects, as well as construction and reconstruction of roads, streets, and bridges. Because all projects eligible for Iowa’s TAP funding are also eligible for STBG funding, applicants for Iowa’s TAP eligible projects may apply to both programs for the same project. Applicants may also apply to both programs for a single eligible project that would include funding from both sources if awarded.

Eligible applicants include all public agencies and local governments within RPA-1 that have jurisdiction over public rights-of-way for transportation (including walking and bicycling facilities); public transportation agencies; and agencies with transportation planning responsibilities. The RPA-1 geographic region includes the Counties of Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek.

The current application cycle is for funding in federal fiscal year (FFY) 2026, which begins on October 1, 2025. RPA-1 is expected to have approximately $2.2 million in STBG and $133,000 in Iowa’s TAP funding available for distribution. Applications for both programs will be accepted beginning January 31, 2022 and are due by February 28, 2022.

The application forms and instructions for both programs can be found on the Transportation page of the UERPC website. Contact Aaron Detter with any eligibiilty or application questions, adetter@uerpc.org or 563-419-6126.
