Title: Integrated TransportationLand Use Planning Miniworkshop


1
Integrated Transportation-Land Use
Planning Mini-workshop
  • 2005 NC MPO Conference
  • Greenville, NC
  • October 27, 2005
  • Presented by
  • Peter Plumeau, WSA

2
Workshop Purpose
  • To help MPO practitioners better understand
    strategies for more effectively integrating
    transportation planning and land use planning.

3
Learning Objectives
  • What does it take to achieve success and/or
    progress?
  • How are obstacles overcome (political, technical,
    resource, etc.)?
  • What does my MPO have in common with the success
    stories?

4
Agenda
  • Background
  • Successful Practices The Key Ingredients
  • Discussion - Your MPOs Situation
  • Tools of the Trade
  • Discussion Your MPOs Roadmap
  • Wrap-up/Adjourn

5
  • Background

6
Background
  • In 2030, about half of the buildings in which
    Americans live, work, and shop will have been
    built after 2000.
  • Nearly half of what will be the built environment
    in 2030 doesnt even exist yet.
  • Most of the space built between 2000 and 2030
    will be residential space.
  • Arthur Nelson, Toward a New Metropolis The
    Opportunity to Rebuild America (Brookings
    Institution, December 2004).

7
Background
  • Growing awareness that transportation planning is
    land use planning
  • Public drumbeat for protecting quality of life
  • Interest in how to do more with less
    (infrastructure funding realities)
  • MPOs can facilitate advancement of integrated
    transportation-land use planning

8
Background
  • AMPO/USDOT Report on MPO Noteworthy Practices
    completed April 2004
  • Report focused on both results and processes for
    achieving them
  • Intent was to distill and describe transferable
    aspects of successful strategies
  • Available from www.ampo.org

  • Successful Practices
  • The Key Ingredients

10
MPO Success Stories
Thurston Regional Planning Council (Olympia WA)
Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Peoria
IL)
Southern California Association of
Governments (Los Angeles)
Atlanta Regional Commission
San Antonio-Bexar County MPO
11
Other Successful Practices
  • NYSMPOs Study of Integrated Transportation
    Planning Community Design Processes
  • Burlington, VT Transit-oriented Design (TOD)
    Guidelines for Small Metropolitan Areas
  • Ontario, Canada Freight-supportive Land Use
    Guidelines

Three Legs of Successful Processes
Successful Processes
Leverage MPO Process Tools
MPO/Local Collaboration/Cooperation
Policymaker Engagement
14
Use MPO Process Tools
  • The well-established MPO planning process
    provides a framework for addressing T-LU
    integration
  • LRTP for articulating shared regional vision
    goals (not only transportation)
  • UPWP for determining best ways to achieve them
  • TIP for making them real (implementation of
    goal-supportive projects/programs)

15
Use MPO Process Tools
  • Use the rich tools techniques embodied in the
    traditional MPO planning process
  • Keys are
  • Being strategic ensuring on-going linkages
    between LRTP, UPWP TIP
  • and
  • Being innovative and resourceful

16
Policymaker Engagement
  • Policymakers need to believe and agree that
  • There is a serious problem to be addressed
  • They are the right ones to address it and would
    be irresponsible if they didnt
  • Their approach is reasonable, sensible and
    responsible
  • They care deeply but face difficult decisions

(Adapted from Institute for Participatory
Management and Planning, http//www.ipmp-bleiker.c
om)
17
Policymaker Engagement
  • Make the process transparent - seek community
    buy-in continuous involvement/feedback
  • Documented community consensus gives policymakers
    legs for making tough decisions
  • Give them plenty of evidence to back up the
    positions they articulate publicly (data, etc.)
  • Identify a champion (or champions) willing to
    spend political capital on a sometimes risky
    issue

18
MPO-Local Collaboration/Cooperation
  • Recognize that local organizations are ultimately
    responsible for land use planning
  • Emphasize role of local organizations or
    officials, with the MPO facilitating rather than
    dictating initiatives
  • More effective to employ local authorities than
    to try prescribing actions they must take

19
MPO-Local Collaboration/Cooperation
  • Be willing to lead during project conception but
    ultimately play facilitator for local solutions
    and innovations
  • Be flexible enough to take advantage of local
    leadership, knowledge and innovation where it
    exists
  • Build relevant partnerships with local
    organizations and provide flexible and
    transferable planning resources
  • Help empower local agencies actors to make
    effective choices

  • Discussion Questions
  • Your MPOs Current Situation

22
Discussion Questions Current Situation
1
  • What recent effort(s) has your MPO undertaken to
    further integrate or coordinate transportation
    planning with land use planning?
  • Was it successful/effective?
  • What level of public and/or policy-maker
    knowledge of this effort(s) exists? Does this
    knowledge level affect success?

23
Discussion Questions Current Situation
2
  • What are your MPOs strengths for pursuing
    integrated planning? What are its gaps?
  • What changes are (or may be) occurring in your
    MPOs planning environment that might affect your
    ability to advanced integrated planning?

24
  • Tools of the Trade
  • An Overview

25
The Importance of Story
  • Data and bits of discrete information, on their
    own, are losing value as they become ubiquitous
    and universally accessible via the Internet and
    advanced telecommunications
  • Story is an increasingly important tool for
    conveying issues and their relevance
  • The capacity to explain, understand and persuade
    not only with logic, but also with narrative and
    compelling imagery

(Adapted from Dan Pink, A Whole New Mind (2005).)
26
The Importance of Story
  • Turning this
  • Into this

27
What are the challenges MPOs face?
  • Conveying complex information in compelling
    understandable way
  • Limited organizational capacity
  • Staff
  • Funding
  • Time

28
Tools of the Trade
  • Data Presentation
  • Maps/GIS
  • Visualization
  • Animation/Video
  • Scenario Planning
  • Participatory Games

Addressing MPO Challenges
  • Recognize busy reader principal
  • Succinct/concise what do I need to know?
  • Customize to audience
  • Focus on engaging people through compelling
    presentation style
  • Use modern marketing styles techniques
  • Be creative with existing tools and resources

41
  • Whats Your Next Step?
  • Developing a Roadmap for Your MPO

42
Discussion Questions Your MPOs Roadmap
  • How might you sketch out a roadmap for
    advancing transportation-land use planning
    integration in your MPO?
  • What is your MPOs goal for integrated planning?
  • Derived from LRTP? Regional vision?

43
Discussion Questions Your MPOs Roadmap
  • What are key milestones on the path to your goal?
  • What are tangible action steps toward the
    milestones?
  • Who (agencies/people) need to be involved?
  • What resources are needed (s, technical)?
  • What is the timeframe for accomplishing the
    actions steps and goal?
  • What are reasonable measure(s) of effectiveness?

44
  • Closing Thoughts

45
Closing Thoughts
  • Be brutally honest about the difficulties
  • There is no silver bullet, just silver buckshot
  • Baby steps are faster than big strides
  • Never forget the politics of implementation

46
Closing Thoughts
  • The Importance of Story
  • "The Information Age we all prepared for is
    ending. Rising in its place is what I call the
    Conceptual Age, an era in which mastery of
    abilities that we've often overlooked and
    undervalued marks the fault line between who gets
    ahead and who falls behind."
  • For knowledge workers and organizations to
    flourish in this age, we'll need to supplement
    our well-developed high tech abilities with
    aptitudes that are "high concept" and "high
    touch."
