MIS: KEY PLANNING ISSUES

The following questions are addressed: How do major investment studies (MISs) relate to the long-range plan process? How do MISs relate to congestion management systems? What is the relationship of MISs to conformity? How do we integrate land use issues into MISs? What changes have occurred in the MPO planning process as a result of MIS requirements? Have we been able to successfully integrate MIS and NEPA requirements? Can environmental issues be adequately addressed to make corridor-level decisions? How have environmental agencies reacted to MIS requirements? How do we get other agencies involved that do not have adequate staff resources and the desire to become involved? How do we effectively engage the public in the MIS process? Have we created duplicative processes? What has been the experience with retrofit projects to date? Are we missing an opportunity to use MISs as means to enable corridor preservation actions to occur? What requirements are being imposed that do not make sense? What changes should be made to MIS/NEPA 404, metropolitan planning, congestion management systems, conformity, and public involvement requirements in order to address problems experienced to date?
