MATS was established in 2012 following the review of 2010 U.S. Census population density data. Prior to becoming an MPO, much of the urbanized areas within Midland County were designated a 'Small Urban Area'. The change in designations ultimately lead to opportunities for continued growth and increased funding for the entire Midland Area.
