<p><span style="FONT-SIZE: 9pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"><font size="3">There is growing interest in some quarters in the idea of using focused "charrette" processes to accelerate project planning, give public participants a more direct role in conducting project analysis. This interest is particularly great in urban, urbanized, or urbanizing areas where development densities make it particularly costly and disruptive to plan large-scale transportation projects (whether highway or transit). This task will: (1) identify potential flexibilities in federal planning process that allow for incorporation of publicly supported charrette outcomes into traditional project planning process; (2) define what a charrette-oriented process might look like generically if it were incorporated into a traditional transportation planning process; (3) identify categories of project planning that could benefit from a charrette-oriented approach; and (4) identify situations where approaches similar to the approach have been applied, whether highway or transit project-related.</font></span></p>
