3 DISAGGREGATE OBJECTIVE PROCESS STATEWIDE 3

4 WHAT ARE THE SHORTFALLS OF PAST SPATIAL RESEARCH? (Zonal level analysis based on urban focus, assumptions of homogeneity within zones) 4

5 Single Family Point Multi-Family Point Non-Residential Point 5 Single Family Point Multi-Family Point Non-Residential Point Single Family Point Multi-Family Point Non-Residential Point Demand Potential (DP) Single Family Point Multi-Family Point Non-Residential Point = = Equivalent DP

6 Criteria to be a Transit-Supportive Zone 1.Centroid must be a local density maximum 2.  EDP must be greater than or equal to transit viability threshold 3.Assumes transit riders are willing to walk one-half mile Burlington, VT & Surrounding Montpelier, VT A A B B 6 1% of land 43% of trips (86% intercity) 21% of VMT
