Managing Land Use On Highway Corridors
Presented by: Brian K. Madigan RLA, CPESC, GYMO Architecture, Engineering, Environmental & Land Surveying
Changing land use and incremental growth along highway corridors is a common problem for all communities. Integrating land use planning with transportation planning is an effective way for communities to address the gradual deterioration of traffic flow, pedestrian safety and even the economic viability of local businesses resulting from unplanned commercial growth. Addressing land use along highways is critical to preserving highway function while, at the same time, improving public safety, economic vitality and the character of the community. This session will explore ways of managing land use to avoid congestion, confusing traffic patterns and accident potential along transportation corridors to maintain or improve community character.
The Jefferson County Department of Planning and the NYS Tug Hill Commission are co-sponsoring a land use training session on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 6:30 PM, at Jefferson Community College.
