Environmental Planning

Transportation projects must consider the natural and built environment in which they are located. Similarly the built environment must consider its impacts on the transportation network.

The RTC uses several tools to promote compatibility between the natural and built environments and the transportation system:

  • Review and comment
    on transportation aspects of planning and environmental documents prepared by other agencies to ensure consistency with the Regional Transportation Plan Goals and Policies and forward applicable plans to the appropriate RTC Committees for consideration.

Regional Conservation Investment Strategy

Identify high-value conservation and habitat enhancement opportunities within a region that will aid in species recovery, adaptation to climate change, and resiliency in the face of development pressures, by providing a science-based guide for voluntary conservation and mitigation actions implemented by a state agency, local governments, non-government organizations (NGOs) or private entities.
