GUIDELINES FOR ESTIMATING THE ADOPTION OF HIGHWAY PROTECTION MEASURES

THE REPORT TREATS TWO QUESTIONS' /1/ HOW HIGHWAY PLANNERS CAN ESTIMATE THE PROBABILITY OF AN INTERCHANGE COMMUNITY ADOPTING LAND USE CONTROLS TO PROTECT THE NEW HIGHWAY FACILITY, AND /2/ HOW THE PLANNERS CAN PROMOTE THE ADOPTION OF SUCH CONTROLS. IT POINTS OUT THAT COMMUNITY ATTITUDES TOWARD SUCH CONTROLS ARE DETERMINED BY' /1/ THE EXISTENCE OF A PLANNING AGENCY AT THE COUNTY OR HIGHER LEVEL, AND /2/ THE NUMBER OF RECENT IMMIGRANTS TO THE COMMUNITY. IT EXPLAINS THAT AN ACTIVE COUNTY PLANNING AGENCY SETS THE STAGE FOR RATIONAL CONTROL AND THAT MOST IMMIGRANTS /AT LEAST OF THOSE FROM LARGER URBAN AREAS/ ARE PREDISPOSED IN FAVOR OF CONTROLS. THE HIGHWAY PLANNER CAN INDUCE FAVORABLE ATTITUDES BY PROMOTING COUNTY PLANNING AGENCIES, BY PROVIDING INFORMATION TO THE COMMUNITY, AND BY PROMOTING IMMIGRATION. /BPR/
