This report summarizes noteworthy practices and key recommendations shared during a scenario planning workshop, hosted by the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization, on November 8-9, 2016, in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored this event as part of its Scenario Planning Program and in connection with the Transportation Planning Capacity Building Program jointly run by FHWA and the Federal Transit Administration. The workshop focused on noteworthy practices for scenario planning, particularly incorporating scenario planning into resiliency, military base, and transportation planning; connecting public engagement opportunities with scenario planning efforts; and identifying opportunities for integrating new technologies into the transportation planning process. The workshop planning team designed the workshop to build awareness of scenario planning and encourage information-sharing among HRTPO staff, neighboring MPOs, and the peer agencies.
