Pilot Testing of the TCAPP Decision Guide and Related Capacity Products: Charlottesville-Albemarle Metropolitan Planning Organization, Virginia

This report documents the Charlottesville-Albemarle Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (MPO’s) implementation and assessment of the Long Range Planning portion of the Transportation for Communities–Advancing Projects through Partnerships (TCAPP) Decision Guide. This report assesses three major components: the performance measures (e.g., evaluation criteria) that are most important to stakeholders, the extent to which changes in these performance measures influence stakeholders’ evaluation of potential investments, and lessons learned from the MPO’s implementation of TCAPP. Details of the methodology and results are given in the body of the report, and the central findings are summarized as follows: performance measure areas matter more than specific performance measures within those areas; performance measure values influence respondents’ support for a project; and most TCAPP steps, as implemented, add value to the planning process. Four critical areas where application of TCAPP demonstrates a need for additional guidance are summarized.
