This is the third in a series of webinars which focus on the 2012 Transportation Planning Excellence Awards (TPEA) Program. The following three projects will be featured:
- Hillsborough County Bicycle Safety Action Plan – The plan uses crash data to isolate existing safety problems and bring together stakeholders from multiple agencies to strategize potential solutions based on infrastructure, land use, education, enforcement, and monitoring activities. The Plan was developed by the Hillsborough MPO in cooperation with the Hillsborough County Public Works Department, City of Tampa, and Florida Department of Transportation.
- 2035 Regional Transportation Plan: Linking Health and Mobility – The Plan guides the use of an estimated $6 billion in Federal transportation dollars and prioritizes positive health outcomes through active transportation and a Complete Streets approach. The desired health impacts of these investments include increasing physical activity levels and reducing rates of chronic disease among residents. The plan was developed by the Nashville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization in Tennessee.
- GO TO 2040 Comprehensive Regional Plan – The plan is metropolitan Chicago’s official comprehensive plan to help its seven counties and 284 communities plan together for sustainable prosperity. The plan was developed by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning in Illinois.
NOTE: Registration is not required; participation will be limited to the first 100 people.
The Transportation Planning Excellence Awards biennial program is sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and is co-sponsored by the American Planning Association and Transportation Research Board. The Program recognizes outstanding projects from across the country that develop, plan, and implement innovative transportation planning practices.
Award recipients utilized planning leadership, environmental and transportation planning linkages, as well as land-use and transportation integration. Additional information about the TPEA Program can be found at: http://planning.dot.gov/tpea2012/default.asp.
