FREEWAY IMPACT ON MUNICIPAL LAND PLANNING EFFORT

SOME SOCIO-POLITICAL FACTORS ARE RE-EXAMINED THAT IMPOSE SERIOUS LIMITATIONS ON THE INTEGRATION OF THE CITY PLANNING AND HIGHWAY DEVELOPMENT PROCESSES. THE CONCLUSIONS IN PART STATE: (1) THERE HAS BEEN INSUFFICIENT FEED-BACK REVIEW BY GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITIES FOR INTEGRATED PLANNING, (2) THE RECOGNITION OF URBAN PLANNING BY STATE HIGHWAY AGENCIES IS STILL IN THE LIP-SERVICE STAGE, (3) THERE IS NOT YET ANY EVIDENCE OF LOCAL LAND-USE CONTROL TO BALANCE THE TRIP- GENERATING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE USE WITH THE TRAFFIC CAPACITY OF NEARBY ROAD FACILITIES OR INTERCHANGES, (4) IN THE ABSENCE OF A UNIFIED URBAN GOVERNMENT, THE FIRST STEP IN WORKING TOWARD THE INTEGRATION OF PLANNING IS A WORKABLE PROGRAM ON THE STATE LEVEL, AND (5) A MUNICIPAL MAPPED STREETS ACT APPEARS TO BE THE MOST REASONABLE WAY OF PROVIDING FOR UNCLUTTERED APPROACHES TO FREEWAYS.
