The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding information sessions about new regulations that establish uniform statewide standards for traffic impact analyses of land-use proposals that will substantially impact the state-controlled transportation network. The intent of the regulations is to improve the coordination between land-use and transportation planning decisions by providing information to local government officials and citizens.
Implementation of the regulations in VDOT's Staunton District starts January 1, 2008. Details about the regulations, guidelines for traffic impact analysis and more information can be found at:
www.vdot.virginia.gov/projects/chapter527 and at VDOT's Staunton District Office, 811 Commerce Road, Staunton, VA 22402-2249.
These information sessions are intended for those in local municipal and county government officials, transportation planners and development industry personnel who are involved in the land development process and would benefit from an overview of the regulations and their implementation, as well as interested citizens. Training sessions for those directly involved with the implementation of the regulations will be held later this year. Please attend the information session most convenient to your location and schedule.
