  • ..and those needs are many.Start to bring in Chattanooga specifics, outlining the many needs of the region in the context of dwindling resources.
  • Developed set of goals/objectives based on extensive public outreach conducted summer 2012.We heard a lot about transportation needs, challenges, frustrations, opportunities.Much of the time, needs were presented from two rather distinct perspectives; one perspective driven by a broad set of stakeholders approaching the 2040 RTP from a more local, community-oriented perspective (focused on advancing livability, quality of life principles, and healhty, multimodal travel options for broad set of users), and the other from stakeholders focused on more systems-level, regional investments (focused on reducing congestion, improving mobility for people and goods … e.g., the “bypass” crowd) to ensure region is well-positioned and competitive from economic standpoint.Difference in perspectives is not unique to the plan process. TPO has developed a performance-framework to help strike the right balance, in terms of addressing needs of both (community/regional). Presented here as the “community to region” transect which is intended to help illustrate the transition in perspectives related to transportation needs as you move from community scale up to regional scale. This “community to region” approach is the foundation for our 2040 RTP performance framework and has been used to guide development of goals and objectives.

    6. 6. Contributing InfluencesSAFETY ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY AFFORDABILITY FUNDING LIVABILITY ACCESSIBILITY EFFICIENCY
    7. 7. Contributing InfluencesOur regional transportation plan mustaddress many needs: – Mobility and access – Economic competitiveness – Safety and security – Environmental impacts and quality of life – Maintenance and operations of existing network…all in a climate of declining resources!
    8. 8. “Community to Region” Framework Region to Region Community to Region Within Community INVESTMENT NEEDS THAT SUPPORT: INVESTMENT NEEDS THAT SUPPORT: • Mobility and intermodal INVESTMENT NEEDS THAT improvements to ensure • Strategic, multimodal region is well connected SUPPORT: connections between within the state and the • Local, multimodal communities and regional nation connections and access to activity/economic centers • Support economic community resources to support economic competitiveness and • Advance livability and quality development advance overall economic of life principles development potential
    9. 9. Proposed Goals and Objectives Within Community Goal: BUILD AND MAINTAIN SAFE AND HEALTHY COMMUNITIES Objectives: • Support walkable and bicycle-friendly communities that promote safe, connections to community resources • Provide incentives for complete streets project design • Encourage investments anchored in integrated transportation and land use planning, that support desired community character • Improve safety through improved system operations, preventative maintenance, and ADA compliance • Prioritize investments in areas where local land use and development regulations support healthy, safe communities • Prioritize investment that improves multimodal access to existing or planned transit hubs or that fills gaps in existing multimodal system • Encourage connected street network
    10. 10. Proposed Goals and Objectives Community to Region Goal: CONNECT COMMUNITIES IN THE REGION BY PROVIDING MULTIMODAL TRAVEL OPTIONS TO ACTIVITY AND ECONOMIC CENTERS Objectives: • Preserve, maintain and improve existing infrastructure before adding new capacity • Provide incentives for complete streets project design • Encourage corridor improvements anchored in integrated transportation and land use planning, that support desired community character • Improve mobility and support economic development by providing expanded set of travel options, with emphasis on public transit • Improve travel time reliability through improved system operations • Incentive corridor protection plans
    11. 11. Proposed Goals and Objectives Region to Region Goal: GROW ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY THROUGH STRATEGIC INVESTMENT IN CRITICAL REGIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE Objectives: • Preserve, maintain and improve existing infrastructure before adding new capacity • Support continued economic growth of the region by improving intermodal connections that reduce delay for both people and goods • Reduce delay on critical regional thoroughfares with minimal impact to community, historic and environmental resources • Improve the efficiency and reliability of freight, cargo and goods movement by reducing delay on corridors critical to freight movement • Improve travel time reliability through improved system operations

Where you place your dot(s)expresses your opinion on the relative priorityof each category.Each participant will also be given theopportunity to identify problem intersectionsand corridors on a study area map.
