FDOT Land Use Analysis to Enhance Successful Logistics Activity Center Development in Florida

The major goal of this research project is to identify the locations with high Logistics Activity Center (LAC) development potential within Florida for future enhancement of successful Logistics Activity Center development while taking into account the above-mentioned factors. The specific project objectives include: (1) Review/revise the criteria for identifying successful LAC development determined through the previously performed Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) D7 study. (2) Identify optimal locations with high LAC development potential within Florida. (3) Develop Geographic Information System (GIS) databases and maps for identified optimal locations with high LAC development potential. (4) Provide recommendations for enhancing identified optimal locations with high LAC development potential per their current land use. This TWO will result in a database of GIS maps (approx. 75 optimal sites around the state will be shown in detail) for locations with LAC development potential within Florida. The GIS maps will include information on the following: Current land use; Acreage; Suitability with current land use and LAC development potential; and Conflicts between current land use and LAC development potential.
