  • Abstract:
    The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and metropolitan planning organizations (MPO) in Florida are

    required to address Title VI and environmental justice (EJ) in the transportation planning process. This study

    reviews those practices and suggests future enhancements based upon a review of the literature, agency documents,

    and input received from Florida MPO and FDOT District staff. Interviews with FDOT District and Florida MPO

    staff revealed a widespread understanding of – and commitment to – Title VI and EJ ideals and intent. Many stated

    that Title VI and EJ principles are now ingrained into their agency’s activities. Florida MPOs indicated that their

    efforts to address Title VI and EJ in development of long-range transportation plans (LRTPs) had noticeably

    increased over the last few planning cycles. A review of LRTPs confirmed that several MPOs have goals or

    objectives that address the needs of low-income and minority populations and other special needs groups. Public

    involvement is currently the primary method used by MPOs to address these needs. FDOT District staff address

    Title VI and EJ in planning through Florida’s Efficient Transportation Decision Making (ETDM) process, in

    coordination with the MPO transportation planning process, and through participation in the statewide Title VI

    Program. This study suggests specific future efforts to further enhance these processes in four key areas: 1)

    identifying protected populations 2) public involvement; 3) evaluating benefits and burdens; and 4) training of staff

    and consultants.
