This presentation was made to the Florida MPO Advisory Council. It covers the results of a yearlong study where all 26 long range transportatioin plans in Florida were reviewed. Prevailing planning practices are discussed, and suggestions for improvement are made. A parallel study on infrastructure funding shortfalls is also presented.

  • Not only less jargon, but many included glossaries and acronym guidesFlorida-Alabama, Okaloosa-Walton, Bay TPOs summary documents
  • -Strings and Ribbons in Ocala and Volusia-Visual Assessment graphic is from Okaloosa Walton-Metroplan “Community Connections”
  • Gainesville Parks PolicyCapital Region TPA canopy roads policy
  • -Incomplete overlap with FIHS-Emerging SIS vs. SIS
  • Varying effective dates, base years, and revenue reporting standardsSome MPOs include O+M of roadways and transitVarying definition of “needs”Some MPOs have no transit shortfallSome MPOs used boxed funds
  • Transcript

    • 1. The 2008 Review of Florida’s MPO Long Range Transportation Plans<br />Alex Bond and Jeff KramerFlorida MPOACOctober 23, 2008<br />
    • 2. About the Review<br />Prior reviews in 1997 and 2002<br />Includes plans adopted between 2003 and 2006<br />Project began October 2007<br />Report release date: November<br />
    • 3. Methodology<br />Collect hard copies of all 25 LRTPs<br />Reviewed each plan and supporting documentation<br />Extracted financial data for shortfall estimate<br />Follow-up with each MPO<br />
    • 4. Observations of Planning Practice<br />
    • 5. Improved User-Friendliness<br />Text more descriptive, more maps and graphics<br />Elimination of modeling data<br />Less unexplained jargon<br />Summary documents and handouts more common<br />
    • 6. The Internet<br />All LRTPs on the Internet<br />Some were only available electronically<br />Some formats work poorly for internet publication<br />
    • 7. Authorship<br />One-quarter of plans were authored in-house<br />Nine consulting firms authored the rest<br />Some replication of critical plan components<br />
    • 8. Public Involvement<br />MPOs are going well beyond state and federal law<br />Many excellent examples of public involvement<br />Did not demonstrate how involvement impacted the final plan<br />Widespread attempts to brand MPOs <br />
    • 9. Public Involvement<br />
    • 10. ETDM and Local Studies<br />ETDM is being used by every MPO<br />Nationwide model, very effective<br />Fewer local studies <br />ETDM-only analysis may miss local issues<br />
    • 11. Transit<br />Increased emphasison transit<br />All MPOs discuss transit, almost all have at least one transit project<br />Often, revenues are being analyzed before needs<br />
    • 12. Bicycle and Pedestrian<br />Deeply ingrained into LRTPs<br />Included in all new roadways<br />Vast networks planned<br />Well-funded, sometimes with boxed funds<br />
    • 13. Strategic Intermodal System<br />Difficulty adjusting to the SIS<br />Some note loss of reasonablyanticipated revenue<br />Uncertain which projects funded by SIS Cost Feasible Plan<br />
    • 14. Interagency Coordination<br />Institutionalized and perpetual<br />Better coordination with CIPs<br />Seventeen MPOs join multi-MPO organizations<br />Uncertain how to relate to toll authorities and incorporate their projects <br />
    • 15. Financial Reporting<br />Base and horizon yearsvaried, some includeTIP years<br />Plan length varied from 15 to 25 years<br />Many MPOs include operations and maintenance<br />Some local sources expire before horizon year<br />
    • 16. Twenty-year Statewide funding shortfall<br />$62,472,500,000<br />
    • 17. Shortfall Details<br />$62.5 billion over twenty years<br />$3.1 billion per year<br />Shortfall is growing<br />Shortfall by MPO available in report<br />
    • 18. Shortfall Methodology<br />
    • 19. Suggestions<br />MPOs should relate how information gained during public involvement activities was incorporated into the LRTP document and the projects it contains. <br />MPOs should continue to refine their LRTPs for Internet publication. <br />Consider the goals of the Florida Transportation Plan when drafting the goals and objectives of the LRTP. <br />
    • 20. Suggestions<br />ETDM is an outstanding tool, but the strength of MPO planning is the insertion of local knowledge into the planning process.<br />MPOs should exercise more editorial control over the content of plans authored by consultants, with the aim of crafting a document that is original and customized. <br />Establish transit needs before revenues are analyzed. <br />
    • 21. Suggestions<br />Even though the Internet will be the primary source for LRTP distribution, at least a limited number of documents should be made available in hard copy format. <br />MPOs should not separate needs on SIS facilities from non-SIS facilities during the analysis and project selection process. <br />
    • 22. Suggestions<br />MPOs should demonstrate their expertise in planning for the transportation disadvantaged in the LRTP. <br />Guidance on how to analyze and consider toll projects would be helpful when planning for these types of roadways. <br />MPOs should continue to work with FDOT to make the investment policy flexible enough to implement the MPO mission. <br />
    • 23. Suggestions<br />Evacuation routes should play a larger role in deciding which projects are included in the cost feasible plan. <br />MPOs should take greater care to demonstrate and document how the projects contained in their cost feasible plan support the adopted goals and objectives of the LRTP. <br />
    • 24. Questions?<br />Comments?<br />Alex Bond, AICPALBond@cutr.usf.edu (813) 974-9779<br />Jeff Kramer, AICPKramer@cutr.usf.edu(813) 974-1397<br />Look for the report in November<br />
