Quality Growth Toolbox Transportation & Land Use

  1. 1. QUALITY GROWTH TOOLBOX
  2. 2. Transportation and Land Use Planning for Quality Growth
  3. 3. <ul><li>Linking land use and transportation planning </li></ul><ul><li>can provide an </li></ul><ul><li>integrated framework </li></ul><ul><li>to guide growth and </li></ul><ul><li>development </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Regional traffic currently relies primarily on interstate travel </li></ul><ul><li>Total miles traveled are continuing to increase </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing congestion is beginning to affect the livability and desirability of communities </li></ul>Nashville MPO Counties
  5. 5. <ul><li>A collaborative effort in developing land use plans and supporting transportation systems will result in: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Improved community livability </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>More efficient use of the existing infrastructure </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Improved economic vitality </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Sustainability </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Improved health </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Density – the intensity of development – influences travel by: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Concentrating people and services in limited area near transportation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Increased demand makes alternative modes more cost effective </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Increase pedestrian, bicycle and transit systems </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Lower auto ownership, fewer and shorter vehicle trips </li></ul></ul></ul>Relationship Between Land Use and Transportation – Density, Diversity & Design
  7. 7. <ul><li>Diversity – the mix of different types of land uses – influences travel by: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Concentrating different land uses in close proximity </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Jobs, services, recreation, schools and everyday needs within shorter travel distances </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Promotes trip linking and on-site capture of trips </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Place making </li></ul></ul></ul>Relationship Between Land Use and Transportation – Density, Diversity & Design
  8. 8. <ul><li>Design – the design and pattern of the built environment – influences travel by: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Creates attractive, comfortable and secure pedestrian environments </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Creates places that attract people who linger and drive less </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Results in well-connected transportation systems </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Creates visual interest and encourages walking </li></ul></ul></ul>Relationship Between Land Use and Transportation – Density, Diversity & Design
