COMPREHENSIVE AREAWIDE RAILROAD CONSOLIDATION AND RELOCATION STUDY--ST. LOUIS REGION. VOLUME 3 - REGIONAL PLANNING-DYLAM II

This report on "Regional Planning - DYLAM II" describes the computer-aided land-use planning tool - the Dynamic Land-Use Allocation Model (DYLAM II) - which was used to project future land-use patterns in the St. Louis Region. These projections assist in the delineation of the future regional distribution of generated rail freight tonnages and will permit testing of the regional land-use impacts of relocation strategies. In addition, the Model provides a dynamic tool for examining the interplay of public policy and development decisions with land use. The methodology used to develop required input to the Model is discussed along with a description of the calibration process, the projection of land-use patterns, and a comparison of these projections with those of the East-West Gateway Coordinating Council.
