Richmond Regional Transportation Planning Organization Scenario Planning Peer Exchange Workshop: Richmond, Virginia November 19-20, 2014

This report documents a two-day scenario planning workshop held November 19 to 20, 2014, in Richmond, Virginia. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored the workshop under its Scenario Planning Program, which is run jointly with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The Richmond Regional Transportation Planning Organization (RRTPO), part of the Richmond Regional Planning District Commission (RRPDC), hosted the event. The workshop introduced scenario planning to a variety of stakeholders, including RRTPO and RRPDC staff and representatives from local, State, and Federal agencies as well as the private sector. Representatives from RRTPO's Technical Advisory Committee, Citizens Transportation Advisory Committee, and Elderly and Disability Advisory Committee also participated. Approximately 40 participants attended; see Appendix B for a list of workshop participants. During the workshop, RRTPO staff presented information about trends related to current and anticipated development patterns in the Richmond region. The trend information presented also provided a background for group discussions throughout the event as participants offered ideas about potential themes and challenges for the region and ways to translate them into scenarios. Three peer experts shared their scenario planning experiences. The peers presented on how they use scenario planning and also shared insights on useful techniques and strategies. The second day of the workshop focused on technical discussions about performance measures, implementation plans, and best practices. Roundtable discussions with the peers, RRTPO, and FHWA staff helped to share lessons learned on these topics.
