Traffic and Transportation
Master Plans guide land use and development for the future. While the Citywide master plan identifies large-scale priorities for the City as a whole, it also addresses transportation in a specific chapter to ensure that the City's transportation infrastructure is developed to enhance accessibility, support multi-modal uses and protect neighborhoods.
Comprehensive Transportation Review
The CTR is the City's Comprehensive Transportation Review Methodology and was adopted by the Mayor and Council in 2004. It replaced the City's Standard Traffic Methodology (STM).
The CTR is a multi-modal approach used during development review to alleviate negative impacts on the transportation system due to increased automobile traffic generated by new development. The CTR evaluates the efficiency of existing infrastructure near proposed developments and delineates improvements necessary to mitigate increased traffic generated from such developments.
Through the CTR, the City is able to meet transportation goals set forth in the City's Master Plan. These goals include enhanced mobility and accessibility; neighborhoods protected from regional and cut-through traffic; and increased safety for all transportation modes.
The CTR requires developers to address increased transportation demand on public infrastructure generated by their project. The CTR provides a fair and consistent standard by which new projects are assessed, based on the scope of their development's transportation impact. Mitigation measures identified by the CTR are implemented to ensure an efficient and sustainable community.
