Goal #8 Land Use will be accomplished through the following policies and strategies.  Please provide feedback on the draft policies and strategies.

Policy 8.1: Promote the use of public transportation by fully integrating public transportation with other community plans including transportation, land use, and economic development plans.

Strategy 8.1A: Integrate transportation and land use strategies that support public transportation in a wide range of community plans, including comprehensive plans, transportation system plans (TSPs), human service coordinated plans, and others.

Strategy 8.1B: Develop, adopt, and maintain transit development plans (TDPs) that describe how the agencies will operate and develop the public transportation system services and facilities over a 20 year period. TDPs should consider community plans such as those for land use and transportation overall.

Strategy 8.1C: Use program and funding criteria and guidance to help ensure TSPs, TDPs, and the transit elements of comprehensive plans are aligned and consistent.

Strategy 8.1D: Include local and regional public transportation providers in the development of local land use plans and transportation system plans (TSPs); include affected land use and transportation agencies in public transportation providers’ service planning.

Strategy 8.1E: Identify and plan for corridors important to current and future public transportation service, and reflect these in transportation and land use plans and ordinances.

Strategy 8.1F: Integrate public transportation and urban growth boundary planning to ensure the needs and benefits of public transportation are considered in planning for community growth.
