The NADO Research Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of a new document summarizing a peer exchange event that occurred in fall 2016. The Regional Transportation Planning Organization Peer Exchange Summary (PDF) covers discussion of a small group of regional transportation planners and state Department of Transportation planning staff, as well as engagement with a larger and diverse group of professionals attending the summit Moving Rural America: National Working Summit on Transportation in Rural America.
The peer exchange summary includes discussion and short descriptions of practice on several topics, including: addressing rural mobility challenges, aligning transportation with economic development, rural public involvement, opportunities to increase economic development by having a safe transportation system, and connecting to transportation safety.
