Visioning or goal-setting has long been a common component of land use planning, but not so much for transportation planning. Join us for a deeper dive into transportation planning to see how goal-setting for transportation planning is used to assist communities in determining transportation facilities (including modal choice) that will provide the mobility and accessibility needed to achieve the community vision, whether the needs are focused on equity, economics, or other locally-determined priorities. This approach demonstrates a complete link between land use and transportation planning. It is presented through a collaborative effort between the APA CO Chapter and the APA Transportation Division, a member of the APA Divisions Council.
1. Use of visioning/goal-setting to identify community values
2. Differences in planning transportation facilities based on economic, equity, or other needs
3. The impact of mobility and access on social equity
4. Choosing transportation modes to achieve goals
