The decisions we make concerning transportation are largely dependent upon and influenced by our land use decisions. This is why we worked from the Future Land Use Map and the established land use priorities to help guide the identification of transportation projects throughout the district. During the mobility planning process, we’re looking to better connect our communities by utilizing best practices, integrating technologies, increasing walkability and bikeability, improving passenger rail, enhancing trails, and more.
At our last meeting in South Greensburg, communities examined how they can align their mobility priorities to their land use priorities to develop a tangible list of projects, at the ready for various funding opportunities. Project categories included roads, bridges, active, and safety & operations.
Throughout the planning district process with the CPD, you can hopefully see how certain themes or priorities have played out at each stage. As land use and mobility are inextricably linked, both the Future Land Use Map and Transportation Projects Map will help ensure any future transportation policy, investments, projects, and improvements are compatible with the CPD’s land use priorities.
Next, we’ll continue to explore how we can address these common priorities through intergovernmental cooperation. Join us for our next meeting on August 25, 2022 @ 6:00 PM at the City of Latrobe, 901 Jefferson Street, Latrobe, PA 15650. Please RSVP here.
