CHARLOTTE COUNTY TRANSIT DEVELOPMENT PLAN. TECHNICAL MEMORANDUM NO. 1: EXISTING CONDITIONS AND PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT

To assess the potential for transit system development, it is necessary to gain an understanding of the environment within which the system would operate. Toward this end, the first part of this technical memorandum analyzes 1) the study area setting, 2) demographic and economic conditions, 3) land use and roadway characteristics, and 4) major trip attractors and generators. The information was compiled using Census data, Traffic Analysis Zone (TAZ) data, Bureau of Transportation Statistics, and other relevant data provided by the Charlotte County-Punta Gorda MPO and other county departments. In the second part, the results of two major components of the Public Involvement Plan are described: 1) interviews with key local officials and 2) the citizen telephone survey.
