Land Use Oversight of New Starts Projects

This project supports the efforts of the Office of Planning to conduct land use assessments for projects seeking Section 5309 New Starts funding. The project effort will include land use and planning oversight of New Starts transit projects undertaking alternatives analysis, preliminary engineering, and final design. Work tasks include conducting assessments of existing land use patterns and future plans and policies, as well as providing oversight of New Starts projects conducting alternative analysis and preliminary engineering. This support will assist the Office of Planning in evaluating and rating the New Starts transit projects based on the required criteria for determining whether projects are eligible for New Starts funding. Greater focus on land use and environmental elements during the transportation planning process will expand the beneficial impacts of transportation projects as well as the effective roles planning processes can play in promoting coordinated land use and transportation planning.
