Multimodal Planning at the Multi-Jurisdictional Scale

The purpose of this research is to advance the multi-jurisdictional planning concept from theory to planning practice. Local agencies and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) recognize and see value in the concept of multi-jurisdictional planning; however, there remains many barriers to implementation. The contractor shall use a case study methodology to identify solutions to these barriers and lead to a “how-to” guide on incorporating multi-jurisdictional principles into the transportation planning process for local governments and MPOs. An APA Planning Advisory Service (PAS) memorandum and webinar/learning resource to support multi-jurisdictional planning integration will also be developed. These resources will promote a formalization of multi-jurisdictional planning which will lead to planning innovations, large scale projects to promote shared economic development, expedited project delivery, shared resources, and better leveraging of non-federal funds.
