Executive Order 13274 Integrated Planning Work Group Baseline Report and Preliminary Gap Analysis. Deliberative Draft

On September 18, 2002, President George W. Bush signed Executive Order (EO) 13274, Environmental Stewardship and Transportation Infrastructure Project Reviews. This EO established an Interagency Task Force to advance current DOT and interagency environmental stewardship and streamlining efforts, to coordinate expedited decision-making related to transportation projects across federal agencies, and to bring high-level officials to the table to address priority projects. The Task Force established an interagency Work Group on Integrated Planning, which recognized the continuing need to more effectively "link" short and long-range transportation planning and corridor level planning studies performed by state and local governments with resource agency and land use planning processes, and with project-specific environmental reviews, approvals, and permitting processes. Drawing on the results of literature reviews, practitioner interviews, and associated analyses conducted to meet the objectives of the tasks outlined above, this report (on Priority 1 - Establish Baseline - of the Work Group's activities) presents a conceptual framework for integrated transportation planning; identifies opportunities for better linking land and resource planning processes with transportation systems planning; describes the challenges that inhibit an integrated approach, as well as approaches for resolving challenges and capitalizing on existing opportunities, identified by the workgroup; provides examples of innovative initiatives and practices that states and localities have implemented to forge integration; and discusses the types of federal action that can motivate the development and implementation of integrated transportation planning and project development processes. This report identifies three levels of recommendations for consideration by the Interagency Task Force. The three levels include: 1. Recommendations on the components of an integrated planning framework and the associated objectives and outcomes that should be pursued and that should ensue; 2. Recommendations on the types of strategies that can be implemented readily to achieve objectives and to make progress toward integrated decision-making; and 3. Recommendations on specific Federal government activities to begin forging an integrated planning approach.
