Streamlining Cross-Linking and Coordination of Transportation and Evacuation Planning among Regional Councils and Metropolitan Planning Organizations

The National Association of Regional Councils (NARC) proposes to address streamlining cross-linking and coordination among Regional Councils (RCs) and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) in instances of manmade or natural disaster evacuations for improved transportation and evacuation planning. RCs and MPOs currently bridge the gap in preparation for manmade and/or natural disasters and evacuations through their ability to link multiple jurisdictions and agencies of governments. Through the involvement of an Advisory Committee, the result of this proposal will;(1) assess current research and resources; (2) develop innovative best practices of coordinated, multi-jurisdictional planning; (3) evaluate the benefits of cost effective cross-functional transportation and evacuation planning strategies; and (4)create decision-making tools and basic case studies for local governments and planning partners to utilize. All products and efforts will be exhibited and discussed in a series of two training workshops that will focus on outreach and education to practitioners and local elected officials.
