Introduction to Missoula MPO

Missoula’s scenario planning experiences

Community engagement

Types of Scenarios

Tools and metrics

Key takeaways

Slide3

Missoula

MPO

Small MPO

Includes: City of Missoula and Missoula County

Approx. 120,000 in urban area

Hub of 5-valleys – limited outward growth potentialHigh cost-of-living; low-wagesNo tax diversity

Missoula is Montana’s “liberal outpost”City/MPO generally not on the same page as Montana DOT

Slide4

Missoula

MPO

Goals and priorities

Support transportation options

Emphasize social equity and community health

Improve public outreach opportunities

Slide5

Missoula’s Introduction

to Scenario

Planning

1

st

Missoula-region scenario planning led by MPO in 2008 LRTP “

Envision Missoula”Desire to link transportation investment to growth/land use3 future scenarios based on growth/land use and transportation for 200,000 population Montana DOT not exactly “on-board” with the

land use piece of the effort

Slide6

Engagement throughout process

Initial visioning workshops – developed land use/transportation scenarios (except

BAU

)

BAU

scenario developed by public and private individuals experienced with Missoula growth and development

Transportation survey – statistical survey via phoneTraditional public workshop to review scenariosInteragency consultationsFinal plan open house

Envision Missoula Community Engagement

Slide7

Business As Usual

Invest in roadway expansion

Target known high-growth areas, but still low density development

Do not depend on growth management

Suburban Satellites

Invest in 4 distinct multimodal corridors anchored by nodes

Highest transit investment

Limit system expansion and rely on local planning and zoning to create town centers

Focus Inward

Invest heavily in Downtown

Highest density of development in urban core

Focus on short-trips (bikes &

peds

)

Limit system expansion and rely on local planning and zoning

Envision Missoula Scenarios

Slide8

Public input used to choose Focus Inward Scenario

Chosen scenario was used to guide project ranking and prioritized project list – but only loosely

TransCAD used to model prioritized projects, but after scenario was chosen

No performance measures other than

VMT

and congestion and no comparison among scenarios

Envision Missoula Scenarios

Tools and Metrics

Slide9

Land use and transportation are inextricably linked (duh)

Prioritized transportation projects should strongly support the chosen scenario (duh)

Performance measures should be used to compare scenarios

Performance measures should reflect other goals besides congestion reduction

Envision Missoula Takeaways

Slide10

2016 Long Range Transportation Plan “Activate Missoula”

Continued Scenario Planning

Slide11

Activate Missoula Community Engagement

Community engagement throughout

Unique website

Interactive maps and surveys

Transportation survey – statistical via internet

Technical and citizen advisory committees

Traditional public meetings

Slide12

Activate Missoula Community Engagement

Public input used to:

Rank plan goals & add new goal (community health & social equity)

Develop scenarios around concept of tying funding to mode share

Choose a scenario and set a mode share goal

Slide21

Activate Missoula Takeaways

Not acceptable to only conduct traditional public meetings

Involve all stakeholders throughout the process, especially State DOT

Congestion will not be solved via new and bigger roads

We can’t afford it

Scenarios

built around mode share goals helped simplify communication of concepts Mode share can be used as a proxy for other factors (organizing principle related to sustainability and resiliency)

Slide22

Key Scenario

P

lanning

Takeaways

Engage with public and stakeholders early and often via multiple methods

Scenarios should be simple

Scenarios should be judged across range of goals and objectives

Acknowledge that transportation is only part of the equation, but projects have to actually contribute to the desired result, not just the status quo
