TRENDS AND CONDITIONS REPORT - 2004. IMPACT OF TRANSPORTATION: TRANSPORTATION AND LAND USE
Transportation both enables and constrains the location, shape, size, intensity and overall pattern of land uses. At the same time, the type, capacity and usage of transportation systems depend on land uses. In recent years, there has been a growing effort to more fully understand and leverage the transportation-land use relationship. There are several fundamental motivations for understanding this relationship: (1) Lane use decisions can complement transportation investments by placing compatible activities adjacent to transportation infrastructure and by placing new activities at locations where transportation infrastructure and services exist or are planned; (2) Land use decisions can influence the amount of travel, the geographic location of travel demand, and the relative attractiveness and use of various modes of travel; (3) Transportation investments can complement land use goals by placing facilities appropriately so as to minimize impacts on adjacent sensitive land uses; and (4) Transportation investments can complement land use goals and plans by locating capacity such that it stimulates development in desired locations. This report details the relationship between transportation and land use in the State of Florida. The report includes five major sections: (1) The Transportation-Lane Use Relationship; (2) Transportation as a Consumer of Land; (3) Planning for Transportation and Land Use Coordination; (4) Critical Transportation and Land Use Considerations in Florida; and (5) Conclusions.
