Summary

The following report summarizes a Peer Workshop on tools and effective practices for scenario planning. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) coordinated and led the half-day workshop at the Midwest Transportation Planners Seminar in Kansas City, Missouri. The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) and the FHWA Kansas Division Office hosted the event. Presenters from the FHWA provided participants with an overview of the scenario planning process and described available resources and tools to assist with scenario planning analysis. The local presenters from MARC discussed population and development trends in the Midwest as well as MARC's visioning and scenario planning initiative "Creating Quality Places." The peer planner from Albany, New York, presented his region's scenario planning effort and how they used performance measures to guide their decision making process. The peer presenter from Binghamton, New York, discussed his region's use of scenario planning, which was unique since his region's population is declining; scenario planning has usually been used in regions where the population is increasing.
