    • Sustainable Planning Sustainability emphasizes the integrated nature of human activities and therefore the need to coordinate planning among different sectors, jurisdictions and groups. 2/28/2008
    • Preventing Problems Sustainability planning is to development what preventive medicine is to health: it anticipates and manages problems rather than waiting for crises to develop.
    • Transport Policies Affect People’s Lives On Average: • People spend about 90 daily minutes on travel activity. • Households spend about 20% of their budget on transportation, so approximately 90 minutes of each workday is devoted to financing transport. • Vehicle parking represents about 10% of building costs and significantly affects housing affordability. • Local and state governments spend hundreds of dollars annually per capita on transportation facilities and services. • Motor vehicle accidents are the largest single cause of fatalities for people in the prime of life (between 5 and 50 years of age). • Motor vehicles are major contributors to air, noise and water pollution, and so affect public health, community livability and ecological integrity. • People who spend more time driving are more likely to be overweight, and people with long commutes tend to experience less satisfaction in life. • The quality of mobility and accessibility significantly affect people’s opportunities in life.
