Henry County W & D Zone

Case Studies
freight access not part of urban site design
Freight Access Not Part of Urban/Site Design

Major new mixed-use center with no loading zones, off-street truck parking or easy rear access

residential influx and proximity to intense freight uses
Residential Influx and Proximity to Intense Freight Uses

New Housing Adjacent to Large and busy freight Facilities

Townhomes Backing to Commercial Facility with Significant Truck Movements

Incompatible Land UsesCoordinate Freight & Non-Freight Land Uses

New Subdivision

Overburdened “Last Mile” Locations

summary of case studies results
Preserve Freight Mobility as Region Continues to Develop

Coordinate Freight & Non-freight Land Uses and Mobility Needs

Ensure Adequate Segregation & Protection of Various Land Uses

Build Goods Movement & Logistics Needs into Land Development & Site Design

Summary of Case Studies Results
key recommendations
Plan in an Integrated Manner

Provide Guidelines for Developers and Planners

Enhance Local Comprehensive Planning and Zoning Processes to Address Freight-related Issues

Key Recommendations
recommendations
Recommendations

Plan in an Integrated Manner - Look at the “Big Picture”

  • Long-range impacts of logistics activity locations
  • Planning, zoning, and policy tools to facilitate logical and community-sensitive siting of freight-intensive land uses
  • W&D development directed to locations with multimodal access options
recommendations1
Recommendations

Provide Guidelines for Developers and Planners

  • Delivery/access needs built into site design and review process
  • Site layout and building design guidelines and templates
  • Adequate access for deliveries part of design standards
recommendations2
Recommendations

Enhanced Planning and Zoning Processes Addressing Logistics-Related Issues

  • Integrate freight access needs into process
  • Consider community impacts of logistics operations
lessons learned conclusions
Freight and Logistics Needs Often an Afterthought in Planning & Site Development Review Processes

Designing for Goods Movement Improves Overall Mobility and Access

Proactive Freight Planning is Critical to Regional Economic Vitality and Quality of Life

Consider Freight Implications in Land Use Planning and Development Review Activities

Plan and Design Newly Emerging Areas to Accommodate Freight Needs

Lessons Learned/Conclusions
lessons learned conclusions1
Reflect Evolving Freight Transportation Needs and Practices in Site Plans and Land Development

Apply Adequate Buffers and Mitigation Strategies

Design Existing and Future Transportation Corridors to Accommodate Freight Needs

Consider Freight Mobility Needs in Corridor Related Plans and Proposed Improvements

Build Logistics Considerations into Land Development

Lessons Learned/Conclusions
