CONSENSUS-BUILDING UNLOCKS MODE SHIFT CHALLENGE AT CAROLINA

This article relates how a five-year plan for transportation and parking access was adopted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill after a community outreach and consensus-building program, which won the involvement and loyalty of the stakeholders, was successfully established. The article discusses how an advisory Committee for Transportation (ACT) was formed, the objectives that it sought to achieve, and the various opportunities that the stakeholders had to participate in the collective issues assessment and strategy setting to formulate the plan. The end result was the adoption of a five-year plan which features components such as a sliding-scale parking permit fee increase, encouraging the switch from single occupancy vehicles (SOV) to transit, working with the local transit system to improve service, establishing additional park-and-ride facilities, and providing incentives for multi-occupant vehicles.
