LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION

This study examines recent experience with techniques to coordinate transportation facilities with surrounding land uses. It describes planning and land reservation methods that will least disrupt the community and that will help provide other desired community facilities to make transportation facilities more useful as well as acceptable. Five common elements found where successful coordination between land use and transportation occur are: cooperative attitude among professionals; existence of local land use plans; implementation of land use plans; multijurisdictional cooperation; and competent and adequately staffed agencies. State legislation is necessary to use such techniques as advance reservation and purchase of right-of-way, authority to lease air rights and participate in joint development and establishment of an advance acquisition revolving fund.
