1 Missoula Planning Summit Milestone 14 August, 2008 Missoula, Montana

2 Today’s Presentation Where we are in the planning process Key Plan Ingredients –Envision Missoula Scenarios –UFDA and Missoula’s Future –Summit & Surveys –Agency Input Plan Goals and Objectives Costs, Revenues and Constraints

3 Missoula’s 2008 LRTP Update

4 Planning for 2035 3 Scenarios for Visioning Workshops were used in Missoula’s Urban Fringe Development Area Study (UFDA) UFDA Defines future development assumptions and affects accruing transportation needs –Programmatic (Modal) Allocations –Nominated Projects (Needs Vs. Wants)

5 UFDA: Three scenarios based on Envision Missoula UFDA: Where to place 13,000 Housing Units Scenario A: Business As Usual –Extend today’s housing trends into the future Scenario B: Suburban Satellites –Growth happens in accessible mixed use town centers Scenario C – Focus Inward –Compact growth occurs contiguously and compactly near central Missoula –Downtown intensifies by building on parking lots and low value commercial sites

6 UFDA Considered Where Land Was Suitable for Development

7 Considerations for UFDA 2035 Planning Scenario Open House Comments Agency Comments Community Goals based on the Growth Policy Existing Zoning Constrained Lands Entitled Lots Infrastructure investment Suitability Analysis

8 Development Areas Under UFDA

9 Where the Trips Will Be High Concentrations of New Trips Downtown In Selected Centers Consistent with Envision Missoula These patterns do not change todays’ needs or “Backlog” Location of Future Trips Frames Assessment of Potential Accruing LRTP Projects

10 Even with UFDA, Many Roads Exceed Capacity if Expansion is Limited to Today’s Committed Projects

11 Public and Agency Input About Transportation Programs and Goals Planning Summit Public Survey Goals and Objectives

12 Planning Summit February & March 2008 Vision Scenarios Presented Public Input Taken About key LRTP and UFDA Issues Including: –Development Choices –Modal Balance –Transportation Investments

13 Development Choices Strong desire for the development of town centers Support for inward growth of the type described in the Envision Missoula Report Desire for development and infrastructure to focus on existing neighborhoods Desire for a denser and larger downtown in Missoula Desire for a greater incidence of attached and multi-unit homes A desire for policies to encourage development near public transportation

14 Modal Balance Public Shows a Balance of Support roadway and non-roadway projects Majority use a non-auto mode at least once a week Preference for short wait times and frequent service as most desired transit features

15 Transportation Investment Desire to expand modal options on existing infrastructure Desire for increased investment in transit Desire to improve safety for all modes and address congestion on existing corridors less desire to develop new major corridors.

16 Public Survey Summary

17 Summit Participation

18 Points of Consistency Among the Public Summit –27 % Favor Expanding Roadway Capacity –23 % Favor Modernizing Existing Infrastructure (intersection/safety/IT S type improvements) Survey –28.6 % Favor Expanding Roadway Capacity –21.2 % favor improvements aimed at Safety (auto, bike, pedestrian)

19 Agency Input Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) City and County of Missoula Mountain Line Transit Safety Agencies Resource Agencies Security Agencies

20 Plan Goal Areas Safety –Higher Rank at High Crash Location –Higher Rank for “Vulnerable Connections (transit, bicycle, pedestrian) Multi-Modalism –Complete Streets –Expanded Options (trails, new routes) –Increased Transit Funding –Increased Enhancements and Bicycle/Pedestrian Funding

21 Plan Goal Areas (Contd) System Preservation –Limit Roadway Expansion Investment, Manage Maintenance Costs Demand Management –Utilize UFDA to manage number and length of trips/demands on the system –Do not use roadway expansion to open new land for development –Expand modal options on existing infrastructure Transit Accessibility –Develop housing and employment near public transportation >

22 Supporting Policies MDT Comprehensive Highway Safety Plan Urban Fringe Development Area Project Missoula Growth Policy Missoula Downtown Master Plan City Code Rewrite Master Parks and Recreation Plan for the Greater Missoula Area Neighborhood plans Recent and on-going transportation studies

23 From Goals to Investments Project Ideas are Unlimited but Funds Are Limited –$1.1 Billion in projects have been suggested by state and local transportation agencies –$383 Million in projected revenues are available UFDA, Visioning, Modeling and Geographic Development Pattern will define geographically “Needs” vs. Wants Survey Results LRTP Goals and Ranking Criteria will help determine which needs are to be funded

24 See if Tom Has Anything to Add… What accounts for the 1.1 Billion? What % is Backlog, What is Accruing, What % is Highway, what % is Other Modes Among Highway what % is Preservation/Maintenance, what % is Modernization, what % is Expansion – a few good slides would help here
