BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND MULTIPLE USE OF TRANSPORTATION RIGHTS-OF-WAY

JOINT DEVELOPMENT AND ITS RELATED MISSION OF MULTIPLE USE OF TRANSPORTATION RIGHTS-OF-WAY IS DEFINED AS A PROCESS OF CONCEIVING, DESIGNING, AND CARRYING OUT A COMBINATION OR URBAN DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES IN A UNIFIED WAY, TO THE END THAT BENEFITS ARE GREATER THAN IF EACH INDIVIDUAL ACTIVITY WERE SEPARATELY PLANNED AND EXECUTED. THE WAY THAT LAND IS USED IS A MAJOR DETERMINANT FOR THE DEMAND FOR TRANSPORTATION. TRANSPORTATION IS A MAJOR DETERMINANT OF THE EXTENT AND WAY LAND IS USED. THEREFORE, BOTH TRANSPORTATION AND LAND USE MUST BE JOINTLY CONSIDERED. THE JOINT DEVELOPMENT CONCEPT IS A POTENTIAL METHOD FOR REDUCING THE FRICTIONS OF COMPETITION IN THE ALLOCATION OF URBAN LAND USE. JOINT DEVELOPMENT SEES ITS IMPLICATION IN THE ECONOMICS OF RIGHT-OF-WAY ACQUISITION AND MORE EFFICIENT URBAN FUNDS THAT MAY TEND TO REDUCE THE NEED FOR ACTUAL MOVEMENT. JOINT DEVELOPMENT IS A CONCEPT OF COLLABORATION AND COOPERATION ON LARGE SCALE. JOINT DEVELOPMENT DEMANDS THE EXPANDED VIEW OF COSTS AND BENEFITS AS A MEANS OF ACHIEVING ECONOMY OR PUBLIC ACCEPTANCE OF PLANS. 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. THE CONCEPT TEAM APPROACH ADVANCES THE NOTION OF REPLANNING AND RESTRUCTURING THE ENTIRE TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR USING THE JOINT DEVELOPMENT CONCEPT AS MEANS OF ADDING NEW VALUES TO THE CORRIDOR.
