ACHIEVING A BALANCE BETWEEN LONG-RANGE AND SHORT-RANGE PLANNING AT AN APPROPRIATE LEVEL OF EFFORT

Increasing concern is being focused on the need for an improved planning rationale for smaller (generally fewer than 200000 population) urbanized areas. It is also necessary to provide officials at federal, state, and local levels with a clearer picture of the appropriate balance between short- and long-range planning for such areas. This paper presents a process for identifying and considering relevant factors that affect transportation planning and describes the planning activities that would result from these factors and the relationship between long- and short-range planning activities.
