Transportation Impact Assessment Review for Appointed and Elected Officials

A presentation on Transportation Impact Assessment Review for Appointed and Elected Officials was made to a joint session of the Planning Commission and the Town Council on November 5, 2018.  When I left the Planning Commission, Steve Kenney requested that I put to together a summary of what elected and appointed officials need to know about transportation impact assessments.  My good friend Dan Hardy, P.E., PTP, led the presentation. He is Principal with Renaissance Planning and the Chair of the Institute of Transportation Engineers technical committee for new Recommended Practice on Multimodal Transportation Impact Analyses for Site Development.
