What are the benefits of performance measurement?
Just ask any parent on the day report cards come out. Seeing how well an expectation is met can be a great source of satisfaction, or if the results fall short, can point to where improvements are needed. Federal rules now require performance measures as a check and balance that proposed transportation plans and projects are helping to reach goals established by the community.
The Hillsborough MPO has documented the performance of the transportation system for a number of challenging goals, even going beyond those identified nationally. The performance areas include:
- State of Good Repair & Resiliency
- Vision Zero
- Smart Cities
- Real choices When Not Driving
- Major Projects
The plan is to continue to evaluate and adjust, track trends, and make progress toward a safer, more efficient, transportation system. The 2018 update to the State of the System report is being presented to the public and committees for review prior to adoption by the MPO Board. The Board will be presented with the report on April 2, 2019.
