About Metroplan

Metroplan serves as the regional voice on issues affecting Central Arkansas, develops transportation plans required by federal law, and convenes stakeholders to deal with common environmental issues. Metroplan also provides information and staff resources to our member governments and the public.

Metroplan is an association of local governments that has operated by inter-local agreement since 1955. Originally formed as the Metropolitan Area Planning Commission of Pulaski County, Metroplan now has members in Pulaski, Faulkner, Saline, Lonoke and Grant Counties. Metroplan is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) under Title 23 of the United States Code.


The Heart of Arkansas

Home to the historic Royal Theatre and part of the upcoming Southwest Trail system sits Benton, Arkansas. The flourishing city, named after Senator Thomas Hart Benton of Missouri, is situated between Little Rock and Hot Springs. From 2000 to 2018, Benton's population grew by 63 percent. That makes it one of the fastest-growing cities in Central Arkansas, and the fourth largest. The mid-size city encompasses capital-city/recreation amenities valued by many Arkansans.
