  • 2035 TP Goals • Priority 1: Develop a sustainable and safe regional transportation system that includes all modes for the transport of people and goods that promotes economic development. – Level of Service Improvements – Job growth in Freight Sectors – Transit Implementation Plan – Staff coordination of land use changes/development – Bike and Pedestrian Infrastructure Investment – Job growth near transportation projects
  • • Priority 2: Encourage the MPO, SGRC and their member communities to cooperatively consider land use decisions by encouraging public participation and involvement in the transportation planning process. – Public Participation Plan – Annual Crash Report – Project Selection Criteria – Public Private Partnerships (transit, GDOT) – Land use, development outside of Urban Service Area – Multi-jurisdictional projects
  • • Priority 3: Promote an aesthetically pleasing, sustainable, transportation system that respects the needs of, and mitigates and/or enhances the impacts on disadvantaged populations and the context of the nearby built and natural environments. – Environmental impact mitigation – Alternative Fuel Usage – Gateways
