  • Abstract:
    The 2005 growth management legislation charged the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) with reviewing and providing concurrence on a variety of development types regarding their impacts on the state transportation system. Of particular concern are roads designated as part of the Strategic Intermodal System (SIS), the Florida Intrastate Highway System (FIHS), and facilities funded through the Transportation Regional Incentive Program (TRIP). This study was conducted to assist FDOT in carrying out this new legislative mandate. Specifically, the research objectives are: clarify the process(es) used in the evaluation of level of service (LOS) regarding transportation site impact analysis for comprehensive plan amendments and developments of regional impact; identify methodology issues and clarify acceptable applications; and define "concurrence" and provide standard guidance regarding review and acceptance of mitigation strategies used to mitigate transportation impacts, particularly on SIS, FIHS, and TRIP facilities for use by FDOT staff and the development community. This report is comprised of two technical memorandums. Technical Memorandum I reviews applicable legislation, literature, research projects, and practices regarding FDOT procedures for LOS analysis within the site impact review process. Technical Memorandum I also identifies issues gathered during a series of interviews held with FDOT and other reviewing agency staff. This initial stage of research resulted in the development of guiding principles including to champion effective mitigation strategies, to recognize valid mitigation proposals, to provide better certainty of outcomes, and to streamline administration. Technical Memorandum II includes tools, resources, and guidance to enable transportation partners to respond effectively to growth management issues, to become more proactive, and to maximize use of limited transportation funds. These transportation partners may include among others, local governments, metropolitan planning organizations, regional planning councils, and the Florida Departments of Transportation and Community Affairs. It also offers examples of what may be considered acceptable mitigation of transportation impacts to transportation facilities that are part of the SIS, FIHS, or are TRIP-funded, and includes reference to many resource documents to further the users understanding.
