Steven S. Mott, a professional planner who has played a key role in short- and long-term planning since he joined the City of Bristol, Tennessee in 2019, has been named the city’s Transportation Planning Manager. He replaces Rex Montgomery, who is retiring in January after a 30-year tenure in the position.

A graduate of East Tennessee State University, Mott holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a Master’s of Public Administration degree. Prior to joining the City of Bristol, he served as a customer service coordinator for Siemens Industry in Johnson City. He is a member of a long list of professional organizations including the American Planning Association, Engaging Local Government Leaders, and International City/County Management Association.

In his new role, Mott will be responsible for developing and implementing comprehensive transportation plans for the Bristol Tennessee/Virginia Urban Area Metropolitan Organization (MPO), which is comprised of the City of Bristol and portions of Sullivan County in Tennessee and the City of Bristol, the town of Abingdon, and portions of Washington County in Virginia. The local MPO works jointly with the Tennessee Department of Transportation, the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, and the Federal Transit Administration to administer transportation grants, oversee long-range transportation planning, and oversee federal transportation funds.
