Sustainable Development

As land uses influence regional travel patterns and demand on the transportation system, and transportation connects land uses and provides access to developments, both need to be planned in conjunction with one another.  NCTCOG supports Sustainable Development: mixed-use, infill, and transit-oriented developments that reduce vehicle miles traveled, enable the use of alternative modes of transportation, promote economic development, and improve air quality.
 
NCTCOG supports local planning through grant programs, infrastructure investments to implement plans, technical assistance, resources, and collaboration between local governments on shared priorities. Below are some of the areas in which NCTCOG promotes land use-transportation connections.
