THE DEVELOPMENT OF COORDINATED PLANNING PROGRAMS FOR HIGHWAY AND SCHOOL SAFETY

THE FIRST PHASE OF THIS STUDY EVALUATED GOAL PREFERENCES OF SCHOOL AND HIGHWAY PLANNERS IN DEVELOPING PLANS AND LOCATING PUBLIC FACILITIES. THE ANALYSIS REEMPHASIZED THE NEED FOR CLOSE COORDINATION BETWEEN THE HIGHWAY AND SCHOOL PLANNERS. THE REPORT COVERS THE RESULTS OF THE EVALUATION OF THE SOCIAL VALUES OF HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION AS PERCEIVED BY THE COMMUNITY POWER STRUCTURES AND OPINION LEADERS. IT STATES THAT THERE IS A NEED FOR MORE EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN LOCAL OFFICIALS AS WELL AS WITH THE PRIVATE CITIZEN IN PLANNING HIGHWAYS. THE REPORT MAKES SOME VERY MEANINGFUL RECOMMENDATIONS CONCERNING THE NEED TO BROADEN THE BASE OF CONSIDERATIONS IN LOCATING HIGHWAYS. IT MAINTAINS THAT STRICT ROAD USER CONSIDERATIONS AND NARROW TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION CONSIDERATIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH. THE REPORT ALSO POINTS OUT THE NEED FOR LONG RANGE PLANNING ON A STATE BASIS. /AUTHOR/
