CTI Academy Project to Develop an Integrated Land Use and Transportation Model for Communities in Kentucky

Grants and Contracts Details


The objective of this research is to develop a modeling framework for integrated land use and transportation planning and embed it within a Structured Public Involvement protocol. A comprehensive review will be conducted for the current practice of community-based land use and transportation planning in Kentucky as well as in other states such as Oregon (9). The research team will review various methodological frameworks and explore their applicability in communities in Kentucky in different geographical scales. KyTC plays a vital role in planning and maintaining the state highway system. The proposed land use / transportation model shall be capable of evaluating the responses to transportation infrastructure investment projects. This involves the modeling of induced demand and its spatial impact (e.g., relocation of residential and business). In order to better understand how local land use regulations articulate with transportation planning at the regional and state level, the role of local policy will also be evaluated. The research team will aim to develop a policy sensitive model by exploring policy variables such as zoning in the framework of integrated land use and transportation planning so that the outcome of different policy scenarios can be evaluated. This capability can help KyTC in coordinating with cities, counties, Area Development Districts, and MPO's to preserve the mobility and accessibility oftransportation facilities, and help exploring the accountability requirement for development decisions.
