Regional Livability Workshop
4.0 Next Steps
The results of the regional workshop outreach will be the foundation for developing tools and materials for organizations and communities around the country who are interested in pursuing or advancing livability in transportation efforts. Next steps for this project include the following:
- Develop a toolbox of training materials on livability with a marketing plan. Based on input from workshop attendees on training needs, and direction from FHWA, a suite of training materials will be developed, using a recognizable design theme and common elements.
- Develop a livability primer. Create a livability primer based on insights from the workshop. This primer will provide guidance to State DOTs, MPOs, Rural Planning Organizations, and regional/local land use agencies to integrate regional transportation, land use, housing, economic development and environmental planning to achieve desired livable community outcomes.
- Develop additional materials. Workshop participants also identified several needs for technical assistance, training, research, guidance, and tools that could help them implement livability-related plans and projects.
