Building Capacity among Regional Transportation Planning Organizations

This project, Building Capacity among Regional Transportation Planning Organizations, will build capacity among regional transportation planners in rural and small metropolitan regions to be able to identify required tasks of Regional Transportation Planning Organizations, understand what the basic deliverables entail, and find sample documents completed by other regions, and complete regional planning tasks that meet a basic standard of development. This project will advance State, metropolitan, regional and local transportation planning capacity building by providing research and training that identifies potential models for use by regional transportation planners. Because public involvement is a necessary element of transportation planning, this project will secondarily address Public Involvement, Environmental Justice, Visualization in Planning.
