Publication Date 2014
Media Count 52p
Personal Author F. Skaer
Abstract The second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Capacity area is working toward designing a transportation planning and project development decision-making framework that better integrates transportation decisions with social, economic, and environmental considerations. Transportation for CommunitiesAdvancing Projects throughPartnership (TCAPP) is the cornerstone of the SHRP 2 Capacity program area. TCAPP delineates a systematic process for interest-based problem solving and collaborative decision making. The final product, found on the website www.transportationf, provides agencies and practitioners with guidance on reaching collaborative decisions as they work through the traditional transportation planning, programming, and permitting processes. TCAPP and its Decision Guide are supported by a series of related research projects that cover topics such as performance measures, greenhouse gas emissions, community visioning, economic impacts, and others. TCAPP was originally developed with practitioners as the main audience; however, to succeed in practice, TCAPP will need support from and understanding of the executives of transportation agencies and environmental resource agencies. These leaders will need to be the champions for collaborative decision making in a multi-agency context. The objective of SHRP 2 C22, Executive Decision Making for Transportation Capacity: The Multiagency Context, isto ascertain what benefits of TCAPP resonate with leaders of transportation and resource agencies, and to inquire about what messagesare appropriate for and make a compelling case for the TCAPP approach tocollaborative decision making. The final product of this effort is the identification of marketing principles, potential marketing strategies, messages, and media that can serve as foundational research for subsequent marketing, outreach, and implementation efforts.
