Integrating Land Use and Transportation Decision Making
Unfortunately, land use planning and transportation investment decisions are often made by different entities and/or levels of government. Land use decisions are typically made at the local level, while transportation decisions are made at the local, regional, state and federal levels. In turn, the transportation decision makers at the various levels need to consider the effects the existing and future transportation systems may have on land use patterns.
