The Transportation Facilities Plan is the city’s 12-year, intermediate-range, transportation planning document. It includes high-priority projects from long-range plans (such as the Downtown Transportation Plan Update, the Transit Master Plan, and the Pedestrian-Bicycle Implementation Plan) and projects that address emerging needs and opportunities. The City Council adopted the 2022-2033 Transportation Facilities Plan on July 11, 2022.
Typically updated every two to three years, the Transportation Facilities Plan is a "financially constrained" plan; the identified cost of the projects in the TFP must be balanced with the city’s transportation revenue projections for the 12-year plan period. Some projects listed in the TFP include funding allocations for initial development or partial implementation only. The TFP:
- Provides the first level of project prioritization necessary to identify projects for funding in the adopted, seven-year Capital Investment Program (CIP) Plan.
- Serves as the basis for the city’s Impact Fee Program. Roadway and intersection capacity projects adopted in the TFP are used to calculate impact fees charged for new developments. The impact fees cover a portion of the costs to increase transportation system capacity needed to serve the demand generated by new developments (information on impact fees).
