Options for Making Concurrency More Multimodal Phase I

Current Washington State Growth Management regulations state that jurisdictions in Growth Management counties must define a Concurrency process that ensures that adequate transportation facilities are present or will be present within three years before construction permits can be issued for new development. The current Concurrency regulations of most cities are based strictly on traffic congestion indices. Yet most city transportation plans assume that a growing segment of travel will occur via transit and pedestrian modes of travel. Research is required to determine practical ways of incorporating transit operations and pedestrian facilities into existing Concurrency systems in Washington jurisdictions. Having multi-modal concurrency systems in place will help reduce congestion in densely populated areas as vehicular trips will be substituted with transit and non-motorized options.
