Vision Statement From 2035 LRTP

Our transportation system will provide a safe and accessible range of options that enhances existing urban areas while providing mobility in a fiscally responsible, energy efficient, and environmentally compatible manner. This integrated system will support economic development, allowing for the effective movement of people, goods, and services necessary to maintain and enhance our quality of life.

  • Objective 3.2 - Interconnectivity Between Modes
  • Maximize the interconnectivity of roadways, sidewalks, bicycle facilities, trails, transit and other transportation system components to provide safe and convenient pedestrian, bicycle, transit and motor vehicle mobility.
  • Objective 3.3 - Connectivity Between Activity Centers
  • Enhance regional connectivity to employment, education, health, entertainment and other major activity centers.
  • Objective 3.4 - Connectivity Between Jurisdictions
  • Enhance connectivity between local government jurisdictions within the region.
slide15

Goal 4: Improve Safety and Security

  • Objective 4.1 - Roadway System Safety
  • Identify and prioritize improvements to reduce the frequency and severity of crashes, and minimize injuries and fatalities.
  • Objective 4.2 - Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety
  • Identify and implement safety programs and enhancements to improve the safety of pedestrian and bicycle facilities.
  • Objective 4.3 - Transit System Security and Safety
  • Enhance security of transit systems through appropriate design, monitoring and enforcement programs.
  • Objective 4.4 - Emergency Evacuation
  • Develop a transportation plan that supports emergency evacuation, response and post-disaster recovery; and improves national, state and local security and emergency management functions.
slide16

Goal 5: Create Quality Places

  • Objective 5.1 - Land Use Efficiency
  • Promote compact, walkable, mixed use development and redevelopment opportunities that encourage a range of transportation options and maximize the effectiveness of the transportation system.
  • Objective 5.2 - Preserve and Enhance Existing Communities
  • Develop a transportation plan with components planned and designed to preserve and enhance existing urban areas and communities.
  • Objective 5.2 - Comprehensive Planning
  • Support local visioning and planning principles by developing a Plan that is consistent with local government comprehensive plans to the maximize extent feasible.
  • Objective 5.3 - Natural Resource Protection
  • Locate and design transportation facilities to avoid or minimize the impact to natural resources including environmentally sensitive areas, and critical lands, waters and habitats.
  • Objective 5.4 - Air & Water Quality Protection
  • Develop and support a multimodal transportation system that reduces vehicle greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants that degrade water quality.
slide17

Goal 6: Provide Transportation Equity and Encourage Public Participation

  • Objective 6.1 - Public Involvement
  • Provide opportunities for public participation that is open, inclusive and accessible for all citizens; and develop outreach programs to engage citizens of all jurisdictions and the traditionally under-served and under-represented.
  • Objective 6.2 - Transportation Equity
  • Include provisions to identify the needs of low income and minority populations and ensure that projects in the Plan do not disproportionally burden low income and minority populations, and include measures to avoid, minimize or mitigate adverse impacts.
  • Objective 6.3 - Transit Access to Low Income and Transit Dependent Populations
  • Support transportation investments that improve public transit services for low income and transit development populations to gain access to jobs, schools, health services, and other needed services.
slide25

Why Forecast?

Necessary input to the transportation model

Increase awareness of neighboring jurisdictions’ plans

Highlight the connection between land use planning and transportation outcomes

Investigate how changes to the land use approach might affect the transportation system

slide27

Constrained Trend Methodology

Start with data from the 2035 LRTP Update

Use the new 2010 base year to correct and update

Gather input from LRTP and TCC committees on:

Major changes to future land use (e.g. DRIs added or withdrawn)

Review of 2035 Employment Projections

Overview of Land Use Alternative

Highlight areas where compact, walkable development has the most impact

Increase jobs/housing balance

Support multiple modes (transit, walking)

Reduce reliance on regional highway system for everyday trips

slide31

Walkability Measures

An Atlanta study measured:

Land Use Mix

Density

Connectivity

Correlated to:

Lower VMT

More walk/bike trips

Lower emissions

“This pattern holds true regardless of many other factors … age, whether they had a driver’s license, their household income, vehicles per household, household size, transit accessibility and regional location”

slide32

Overview of Alternative Land Use

Potential measures of success:

Reduce VMT (trip length)

Reduce per capita VHT (time spent traveling)

Increased transit/walk share of mode split

Increased reverse commuting

slide33

We Need YOU!
