Performance Targets and Indicators
A requirement of MPOs that was established in the "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century" Act (MAP-21) and continued in the "Fixing America's Surface Transportation" (FAST) Act was the establishment and tracking of performance targets on a wide range of transportation measures. The Commission has established performance targets in many areas.
Transit Asset Management (TAM) Performance Targets
The Commission worked with Shoreline Metro to establish a TAM plan (including TAM performance targets) for the transit operation. Since Shoreline Metro is the only transit operator in the metropolitan planning area, the plan and performance targets also apply to the MPO. The Sheboygan MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees recommended approval of the targets at their September 5, 2019, joint meeting, and the Commission approved these targets for the MPO at its meeting on September 13, 2019. The Sheboygan Transit Commission approved the plan and targets for Shoreline Metro on October 22, 2019.

Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Performance Targets
The Commission worked with WisDOT staff to update HSIP performance targets for the Sheboygan Metropolitan Planning Area. Some effort went into examination of crash data within the metropolitan planning area in 2019 in order to determine where the area stood in comparison with statewide averages. Since all five targets being established were below statewide averages applied to the vehicle miles traveled (VMT) of the metropolitan planning area (as five year averages over the period from 2014 through 2018), the MPO decided to support the state targets as opposed to setting independent targets. Targets are required in the following areas: average annual fatalities; the average annual fatality rate; average annual serious injuries; the average annual serious injury rate; and average annual non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries. Rates are determined per 100 million VMT. Targets were set for 2020, and at the statewide level include 2 percent reductions in average annual fatalities and the average annual fatality rate, as well as 5 percent reductions in average annual serious injuries, the average annual serious injury rate, and in average annual non-motorized fatalities and serious injuries. The Sheboygan MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees recommended approval of supporting WisDOT's statewide targets at their December 12, 2019 joint meeting, and the Commission approved support of WisDOT's statewide targets for the MPO at its meeting on December 13, 2019.

PM2 & PM3 Performance Targets
Other performance targets have been established in 2018 in areas such as: pavement condition, bridge condition, and emission reductions associated with Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) improvement program projects. Pavement and bridge condition targets only apply to the National Highway System (NHS), with conditions on Interstate highways and other NHS highways typically reported separately.

2018 Transportation System Performance Indicators Report
The Commission prepared the 2018 Transportation System Performance Indicators report in late 2018. The Sheboygan MPO Technical and Policy Advisory Committees reviewed this report at their joint meeting on December 13, 2018.
