Piedmont Triad Scenario Planning and Growth Allocation Project
Regional Growth & Development Scenarios
Transportation planners have long struggled with how development patterns and transportation networks impact each other. The struggle lies within accurately modeling the distribution of future population and employment growth across the region. Where people live and work have a significant role in what the transportation network looks like.
To help address this opportunity, PART is leading an effort to introduce a scenario planning tool called CommunityViz. This tool will better inform the regional travel demand model by enhancing the results that help shape and inform each Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (MPO) Transportation Plan. There has been tremendous regional interest and cooperation implementing this tool.
Piedmont Triad MPO’s, as well as cities’ and counties’ GIS and planning departments are actively assisting with getting the tool up and running. The project has involved over 40 professionals across the region. The goal is to have the scenario modeling tool calibrated and ready for use for the 2022 Base Year Update of the Regional Travel Demand Model..
