The NOACA policy requires Project Planning Review (PPR) for all new projects being added to the Transportation Plan and/or Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). PPR is also required for projects that undergo a change of scope or a cost increase greater than 20 percent.
Projects Currently Available for Review:
PRR is a comprehensive process and normally takes three months to complete. View the current schedule
for specific dates.
- Staff Review
NOACA staff reviews each project application for completeness and accuracy. Staff will then offer comments with regard to the NOACA Strategic Plan (Going Forward, Together) goals and Long-Range Transportation Plan, AIM Forward 2040.
- Committee Review
Staff comments are distributed to NOACA committees and councils for further review and comment. After a period of review and discussion, the committees make their recommendations to the Board of Directors.
- Intergovernmental Review and Consultation (IGRC)
NOACA encourages governmental organizations and communities to review and comment on proposed projects. If you represent a governmental entity and would like to comment on a project, please email us or call 216-241-2414, x285.
- Public Involvement
NOACA welcomes comments from the public about proposed projects. We would appreciate it if you include your city of residence, although it is not required. The public review period lasts until the Board of Directors makes a decision about them.
- Board of Directors Review/Consideration
Only after the full review process is finished does the Board of Directors resolve that Project Planning Review is complete. This action allows the project to be added to NOACA’s long-range Transportation Plan. This is a requirement for a project being added to the Transportation Improvement Program, which is NOACA’s four-year capital budget.
