We envision a community with a safe, comprehensive, low-carbon transportation system that complements smart land use planning, focusing growth and vitality inward toward existing infrastructure, neighborhoods, and public services. Our community will develop infrastructure and new growth that is adaptable and in the direction of existing services, while promoting a bold “multi-modal” transportation network that empowers people to walk, bike, and bus and is an efficient, affordable, and sustainable way to meet our transportation needs.
Where we're heading:
Develop Safe, Comprehensive Transportation Infrastructure
Integrate Transportation and Smart Growth Strategies
