About Lake-Sumter MPO

The Lake-Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) was established on Feb. 25, 2004, after the 2000 U.S. Census determined the urbanized areas around Leesburg, Eustis and Lady Lake had exceeded a population of 50,000.

The designation couldn’t have come quick enough for the booming area. Transportation planning is at a critical time in the Lake and Sumter region. Due to growth, it is predicted that vehicle miles traveled daily on the Lake-Sumter road network will almost double during the next 20 years.

Planning wisely can keep the transportation system working efficiently. Tasked with effectively identifying the public’s transportation needs is the Lake-Sumter MPO Board. The Board consists of elected officials representing all of the local governments in the region, including municipal and county entities.
