The mission of the Mobility 2035: Metropolitan Transportation Plan (Mobility Plan 2035)
is to accommodate the mobility needs of a growing region by providing access to and connections between diverse modes of transportation, all of which can help to improve
air quality. Encouraging livable communities which support sustainability and economic
vitality is a specific goal of Mobility 2035 because of the interconnections between land
use, transportation, economy, environmental quality, and livability.
Mobility 2035 supports the following Sustainable Development policies:
SD3-001: Support mixed-use, infill, and transit-oriented developments that utilize
system capacity, reduce vehicle miles of travel, and improve air quality through
rail mobility and access management.
SD3-002: Promote livable communities that offer safe, reliable, and economical
choices; contain equitable and affordable housing; and enhance economic competitiveness which support the HUD-DOT-EPA Interagency
Partnership Principles of Livability.
SD3-003: Plan and implement multimodal transportation options that connect
complement a variety of land uses while serving diverse demographic groups.
Encourage sustainability through a cooperative process of preservation, integration, and development of land which support healthy transitions between ranges of development possibilities from natural areas to the urban core.
