The organization's Policy Board made amendments to the by-laws at it's meeting held on July 11, 2013 to change the MPO's name. The name change more accurately reflects the organzation's regional service area that includes Garland County, Hot Springs, Hot Springs Village, Mountain Pine and part of Hot Spring County. Further, the Tri-Lakes MPO Policy Board also elected to transfer the MPO's operations to West Central Arkansas Planning and Development District (WCAPDD).

The MPO is responsible for planning and developing a safe, efficient and affordable transportation system for the region.
