Focused on the developer perspective, the panel discussed a number of questions, including:
- Would a development-based TDM requirement scare off developers from coming to your community?
- Can a TDM policy accommodate future growth and development while offsetting the transportation impacts of most concern to communities?
- Since every community is different, how do you develop transportation solutions tailored to each unique development?
The panel discussed what developers from Seattle, WA, and Fairfax, VA (Washington, DC suburbs) thought works well with the TDM policies in their communities.
They also focused on nine key steps designed to help communities establish TDM policies that are customized to their circumstances and designed for optimal outcomes, using an inventory of TDM Policies and Best practices from 10 communities across the United States. These steps and best practices are discussed more fully in the ULI handbook, Building a Multimodal Future: Connecting Real Estate Development and Transportation Demand Management to Ease Gridlock, co-authored by Justin.
