HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CONFERENCE: JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE OF TRANSPORTATION RIGHTS-OF-WAY

THE CONFERENCE ON JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE OF TRANSPORTATION RIGHTS-OF-WAY WAS DIVIDED INTO FOUR GENERAL TOPIC AREAS: (1) A GENERAL OVERVIEW OF JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE OF TRANSPORTATION RIGHTS-OF-WAY WITH ILLUSTRATIONS OF PROJECTS THAT HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTED OR CONTEMPLATED THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, (2) A NUMBER OF CASE STUDIES WERE REVIEWED THAT UTILIZED THE JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE CONCEPTS, (3) PLANNING, ECONOMIC, SOCIAL, ENGINEERING, AND LEGAL ASPECTS WERE CONSIDERED OF JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE, AND (4) CURRENT PROGRAMS AND POLICIES WERE REVIEW OF THE FEDERAL HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION, THE BUREAU OF PUBLIC ROADS, AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT TOWARD MULTIPLE USE AND JOINT DEVELOPMENT. MULTIPLE USE CAN PROVIDE ECONOMIES IN THE USE OF LAND REQUIRING HIGH ACCESSIBILITY. IT MAY ALSO BE UTILIZED TO IMPROVE THE STRUCTURE OF NEIGHBORHOODS AND ADD TO ANY HOUSING SUPPLY OR SUPPLEMENT OPEN SPACE. JOINT DEVELOPMENT SEES ITS IMPLICATION IN THE ECONOMICS OF RIGHT-OF-WAY ACQUISITION AND MORE EFFICIENT URBAN FORMS THAT MAY TEND TO REDUCE THE NEED FOR ACTUAL MOVEMENT. THE CORRIDOR CONCEPT PLACES EMPHASIS ON MULTIPLE- CONCENTRATION OF LAND USES WITH ACCESSIBILITY REQUIREMENTS MATCHING THE LEVEL OF ACCESS PROVIDED BY THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS. SINCE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE ARE INTERDISCIPLINARY, A NEW DESIGN TEAM APPROACH IS NECESSARY TO BRING TOGETHER THE ROUTE LOCATION AND DESIGN DIMENSIONS IN CONSIDERATION OF BROAD ECONOMIC, SOCIAL, AND POLITICAL IMPACTS OF SUCH PROJECTS, ESPECIALLY IN URBAN AREAS.
