Advancing Innovation in Transportation and Economic Development: Capacity Building for County Leaders

This project will investigate and promote new ways for county officials, county staff, and their local and regional partners to strategically align transportation planning and investments with economic development priorities. This project will also build the capacity of county leaders to improve transportation planning decision-making and coordination, and strengthen their ability to link transportation planning with economic development strategies, land use plans, and related local and regional planning, policy and investment decisions. In addition, this project will address Freight Planning by demonstrating opportunities for countries to engage the private sector freight community into the transportation planning process and integrating freight plans into local, regional, and state transportation planning and programming processes. It will also address Planning and Environmental Linkages by investigating techniques for using a collaborative approach to transportation planning and prioritization by integrating environmental, economic, and community goals into the transportation planning process.
