2018-19 Linkage Program Solicitation Issued

CDTC is currently soliciting for planning projects through its 2018-2019 Community and Transportation Linkage Planning Program. The Linkage Program is designed to fulfill the adopted planning and investment principles in New Visions 2040, the long range regional transportation plan, by providing integrated land use and transportation planning assistance to local communities. CDTC’s adopted policies reflect a strong regional consensus indicating that the region’s quality of life, mobility and economic vitality are dependent upon improved local land use planning and on better integration of land use development and the transportation system. The Linkage Program emphasizes seven broad planning strategies that are consistent with the New Visions 2040 planning and investment principles. Submissions will be screened as part of the evaluation process for consistency with the Linkage Program strategies.

The seven strategies are to:

  • Create a connected and integrated multi-modal transportation network
  • Support urban revitalization and redevelopment of existing commercial/residential areas
  • Enhance and develop activity centers and town centers
  • Encourage and develop transit corridors and transit supportive built environments
  • Encourage a greater mix and intensity of land uses in municipal centers
  • Develop bicycle and pedestrian-friendly community and site design standards
  • Reduce driveway conflicts through access management
