Eastern Shore Metropolitan Planning Organization
The 2010 U.S. Census has determined that Urbanized Areas (UZA) of at least 50,000 combined
population and requisite density exist in the Eastern Shore Area, and therefore meet U.S. Code
requirements for the formation of an MPO. Title 23 USC 134, 135, and 23 CFR 450, provide
the governing authority and organizational requirements for an Eastern Shore MPO consisting
primarily of the cities of Daphne, Fairhope, Spanish Fort, and Loxley.
