All over the country, state and local governments are looking to “right-size” road projects and develop transit to better support community goals and long-term sustainable visions, especially as conventional options, such as widenings, become too expensive or prove unsustainable. PPS helps decision-makers at the local, county and statewide levels shift their agencies, staffs, consultants, and communities toward a more integrated way of planning transportation and land use, based on Placemaking principles. PPS blends Smart Growth planning principles with place-based visioning to help cities, towns and regions develop positive visions for their futures, in part by helping them to understand how transportation infrastructure is public space, and can be creatively designed and managed to support long term development and livability.
