Multimodal Transportation Planning Best Practices and Model Element – A Four Part Web Series
Many communities are updating their comprehensive plan to promote a wider variety of transportation modes. In the process, they are making changes that improve livability and the local and regional economy. This four part webinar will highlight best practices for effective multimodal planning and how to coordinate local government efforts with plans of other state, regional, and modal agencies. The web series is based on training sessions hosted by the FDOT Office of Policy Planning and the recently released FDOT report Multimodal Transportation Best Practices and Model Element and the Mobility Review Guide.
The series is geared towards state transportation agency and state land planning agency staff, local government planners, transit agency staff, metropolitan planners, and others interested in improving mobility through coordinated transportation and land use planning and application of multimodal planning best practices. It will address new multimodal planning requirements of Florida’s 2011 Community Planning Act, professionally-accepted best practices for integrated land use and transportation planning, and the Mobility Review Guide and Checklist framework for identifying the relative strengths and shortcomings of local plans from a multimodal perspective. Specific topics include: key multimodal planning concepts; vision and coordination; complete streets/context sensitive network planning; public transportation and land use; pedestrian and bicycle modes; ports, airports and intermodal facilities; goals, objectives and policies, performance measures and priority setting. Participants will also be updated on important FDOT multimodal planning initiatives, including the FDOT complete streets implementation plan.
