Summary

The following report summarizes a Peer Workshop on tools and effective practices for scenario planning. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) coordinated and supported the one day workshop. The FHWA North Carolina Division Office, the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and the Town of Mooresville hosted the event in Mooresville, North Carolina. Presenters at the workshop provided participants with an overview of the scenario planning process, shared examples of scenario planning efforts from elsewhere in the country, and described available resources and tools to assist with scenario planning analysis. Participants then brainstormed ideas for scenario planning in the Mooresville region.

Next Steps were identified at the workshop closeout. These next steps included agreeing to proceed with the scenario planning process; identifying stakeholders; creating an exploratory committee to define the scope and jurisdiction, help manage the process, and, with the help of the FHWA, contact other communities that have done or are doing scenario planning; identifying roles and responsibilities; and orienting existing and upcoming plans with scenario planning.

Tim Brown from the Town of Mooresville presents information to workshop participants. Workshop participants raise their hands to provide ideas during a brainstorming session. Chris Sinclair gives his presentation to workshop participants.
