INTEGRATION OF LAND USE, TRANSPORTATION, AND ENERGY PLANNING IN MIDSIZED CITIES

Broad-based concerns about long-term efficiency in using energy resources cannot be addressed primarily by the modification of the travel behavior of individuals. Alternatives that depend on redirecting travel patterns must be explored. The current study focuses on the use of such land use planning policies as the encouragement of infill and the development of neighborhood service centers as means of affecting modifications of travel patterns. After an analysis of the experiences of a national sample of 10 midsized cities, it was concluded that 10 years after the 1974 Arab oil crisis the potential for redirecting development patterns in midsized cities has only begun to be recognized. Whether such changes can significantly affect transportation patterns remains to be seen.
