Guide for Integrating Goods and Services Movement by Commercial Vehicles in Smart Growth Environments

This report provides policymakers with proactive and reactive practices—policy, planning, design, and operations—to integrate goods and services movement by commercial vehicles in smart growth environments. The Guide describes practices (1) that consider the coexistence of goods and services movement in smart growth environments at both the design and implementation stages and (2) to retroactively improve existing conditions. This guide is designed to help government agencies, developers, building and streetscape designers, and freight carriers identify conflicts and issues and approaches to better integrate goods and services movement in the design and management of buildings and streets in smart growth environments, using best practices and case studies. The guide addresses the gap in the available educational materials and improve the dialog between the freight stakeholders operating in smart growth environments and the professional community that designs, develops, and maintains the assets of these places. The ultimate objective is to help stakeholders work together to create environments that achieve the multiple benefits of smart growth while accommodating freight movement to support critical economic activity. Strategies for accommodating freight in multiple types of smart growth communities have been identified, detailed, and supported with current examples from the United States and abroad.
