OPENING REMARKS OF THE CONFERENCE CHAIRMAN:JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE OF TRANSPORTATION RIGHTS-OF-WAY

THE CONFERENCE INTENDS TO DISCUSS HOW AND TO WHAT EXTENT THE CONCEPTS OF JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE MAY BE PUT INTO GENERAL PRACTICE. MULTIPLE USE CAN PROVIDE ECONOMIES IN THE USE OF LAND REQUIRING HIGH ACCESSIBILITY. THE POTENTIALS OF JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE MAY IMPROVE URBAN TRANSPORTATION DEVELOPMENT IN RELATION TO COMMUNITY NEEDS AND OBJECTIVES. MANY LOOK UPON JOINT DEVELOPMENT AS A WAY OF CONSERVING A DWINDLING SUPPLY OF URBAN LAND. URBAN LAND IS SCARCE AND GETTING MORE SCARCE. OTHER OPPORTUNITIES TO USE JOINT DEVELOPMENT TO FURTHER THE LAND PLANNING OR ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS OF A COMMUNITY WILL BE DISCUSSED. THE CONFERENCE WILL EXPLORE WAYS IN WHICH MULTIPLE USE HAS BEEN APPLIED TO IMPROVE THE STRUCTURE OF NEIGHBORHOODS, TO ADD TO THE HOUSING SUPPLY, OR TO SUPPLEMENT OPEN SPACE. JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE ARE IMPORTANT TOOLS FOR URBAN IMPROVEMENT.
