    ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT



    THE PURPOSE OF THE NATIONAL POLICY CONFERENCE ON ITS AND THE ENVIRONMENT WAS TO CONDUCT A WIDE RANGING EXAMINATION OF HOW INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION AND RELATED ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES COULD IMPACT ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES AND PRINCIPLES. THE CONFERENCE PROGRAM WAS ORGANIZED AROUND FOUR AREAS: 1) NEW STRATEGIES AND TECHNOLOGIES, 2) ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPLICATIONS, 3) INSTITUTIONAL ISSUES, AND 4) SOCIETAL IMPLICATIONS. THE CONFERENCE INCLUDED

    TWENTY-THREE COMMISSIONED PAPERS ACROSS THE FOUR GENERAL CATEGORIES; EIGHT OF THE COMMISSIONED PAPERS WERE PRESENTED DURING THE FULL SESSIONS OF THE CONFERENCE. OVER THE TWO DAY PROGRAM, THE CONFERENCE FEATURED THE VISIONS

    AND PERSPECTIVES OF MANY DIFFERENT EXPERTS AND EXPLORED MANY COOPERATIVE POSSIBILITIES TO ADDRESS THE ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

    THROUGH THE COURSE OF PLENARY PANEL PRESENTATION AND BREAKOUT GROUP DISCUSSIONS, THE CONFERENCE PRODUCED A SET OF POLICY, RESEARCH AND INSTITUTIONAL ISSUES THAT WILL LIKELY SET THE AGENDA FOR FUTURE ACTION. IN THE AREA OF NEW STRATEGIES AND TECHNOLOGIES, ATTENDEES FOUND THAT, ALTHOUGH THE TRANSPORTATION AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMUNITIES DO NOT NOW SHARE A COMMON VISION, THERE WAS AFFIRMATION TO STRIVE FOR A COMMON MULTI-MODAL VISION FOR ITS. THE INSTITUTIONAL MECHANISM FOR ACCOMPLISHING THIS WOULD BE TO MAINSTREAM ENVIRONMENTAL AND OTHER PUBLIC INTEREST GROUPS INTO POLICY DISCUSSIONS. SUCH CONCRETE ACTION SHOULD INCLUDE A MECHANISM FOR PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT, RECOGNIZE REGIONAL DIVERSITIES, AND ADDRESS EQUITY ISSUES. CONFERENCE ATTENDEES WERE IN AGREEMENT THAT A STRENGTHENED MPO PROCESS WAS THE APPROPRIATE MECHANISM TO INCORPORATING THESE CONCERNS INTO THE ITS DEPLOYMENT DECISIONS.
