This is the first phase of a regional transportation study. This first phase of work is intended to be a 12-month effort. The project purpose is to develop a limited number of future metropolitan growth concepts, depicted by images and written descriptions, not a plan. Public participation involving citizens and local governments will be a vital part of each step of the process. A base case which describes the future as a projection of present policies will be completed as well as alternative development concepts, applied to maps, for evaluation to be completed as part of a later phase. The soon to-be completed Regional Urban Growth Goals and Objective (RUGGO) will serve as the policy basis for the work effort. This Phase I project is part of a larger body of work to be carried out in the next three to four years. This larger body of work includes completion of RLIS (Metro's parcel-based geographic information system), an Urban Infill Analysis, an Urban Reserve Analysis, Growth Forecasts, Growth Allocations and major update of the Regional Transportation Plan.
