Planning for Transit Readiness

The Next Stop Fort Lauderdale planning study, which was funded through a Federal Transit Administration (FTA) planning grant awarded to the City, helped advance their goal to enhance quality of life by addressing elements related to community livability. The planning study explored tools to address multimodal street prioritization, land development regulations, market supply and housing affordability, transportation demand, and inter-agency coordination challenges within the planning area. The project team provided the City of Fort Lauderdale with a comprehensive roadmap to guide their decision-making process as they move forward in implementing multimodal infrastructure within the planning area.  The study focused at exploring mechanisms to provide the City with guidance and tools to foster the walkable, connected, transit supportive place they envision the planning area to be – by creating an aligned framework that integrates an understanding of land use and multimodal needs. This approach, which ties infrastructure and placemaking needs, support the City’s long-term economic development strategy for the Downtown area.

The project team engaged with key community groups and public and private stakeholders to gather meaningful input as part of a comprehensive engagement process. The planning study explored tools to address multimodal street prioritization, land development regulations, market supply and housing affordability, transportation demand, and inter-agency coordination challenges within the planning area. Accessibility to transit and affordable housing were highlighted as two key challenges for the City to address in order to become a multimodal community. This project was successfully completed in 2019.
