Abstract

In 1999, the Florida legislature enabled local governments to establish Multimodal Transportation Districts (MMTD) in their comprehensive plan as a means of promoting a high quality multimodal environment within selected urban areas. The Florida Department of Transportation and its partners have engaged in several projects to support a more multimodal approach to transportation and development planning. These efforts have included development of multimodal level of service standards, as well as procedures for determining multimodal level of service and concurrency. This project builds on that work by providing model comprehensive plan amendments and land development regulations to assist local governments in implementing multimodal transportation districts, where priority is placed on walking, bicycling and transit use through a coordinated package of land use and transportation strategies.
