Workshops are included in meeting registration. No sign up required.Transportation for Communities – Advancing Projects through PartnershipsWednesday, May 23, 8:00am-NoonThe purpose of the SHRP 2 Capacity Program C01 project was to create a “collaborative decision making framework” for the implementation of new capacity projects. Transportation for Communities - Advancing Projects through Partnerships (TCAPP) was launched in January 2010 to make the framework (now the Decision Guide) available through a web-based application at www.transportationforcommunities.com . The Decision Guide is a structure of the key decisions that are common to all transportation agencies in the earliest phases of decision making: long range planning, programming, corridor planning, and environmental review merged with permitting. This workshop session will focus on introducing the TCAPP web-tool and helping participants access the depth of information and support it provides. The workshop will highlight the cross-phase linkages available in the Decision Guide which illustrate how decisions made in planning and programming have relevance at many other key decisions throughout the planning process. Facilitators: Janet D’Ignazio, Beverly Bowen (ICF)
Introducing TCAPP - What is TCAPP, who created it and for what purpose?
General TCAPP tour - Features in TCAPP and how these can support practitioners; including visioning, performance measures, stakeholder collaboration, integrated planning, and programming
Facilitated discussion – What tweaks your interest in TCAPP? Ideas from the audience to demonstrate how TCAPP works.
Getting started - What's your issue? Selected issue to use as an example for how to use TCAPP
Continued testing of relevant interests – Participants work individually, in small groups, or as an entire workshop to identify challenges that TCAPP can help address
Conclusion – Answer questions and review features of TCAPP that are coming soonSafety Planning Boot CampWednesday, May 23, 8:00am-11:30amAre transportation planners able to meaningfully integrate safety into the planning and programming activities or do capacity, environmental impacts, and political priorities dominate the decision making process? Since 1998, when Federal legislation first addressed safety as a planning requirement, planners have struggled to answer the question: how do we meaningfully integrate safety into our planning products and programs? Establishing safety as a goal is the easy part, but what comes next? Early on, this was a particular challenge because most safety planning was reactive which doesn’t fit well when planning for a 20+ year horizon. However, the world of safety has changed dramatically in the last decade and proactive, long range planning is feasible. Further we know more about the benefits of reducing crash frequency or severity in the context of livability and community public health. This interactive workshop is designed to provide a framework and tools for addressing safety in the long range planning process and other planning exercises. Please join us for the workshop and sharpen your understanding of safety in planning. You will leave with concrete steps for turning vision into reality and plans into programs.Facilitators: Susan Herbel, Mike Meyers, Deb Miller, and Nicole Waldheim.Agenda
