The Federal Highway and Federal Transit Administrations jointly prepared this document as a guide for development of transportation plans in rural areas of the country.
Right up front, you should know that this document is for transportation geeks--apologies to everyone else! It provides a comprehensive discussion of what elements should be considered in planning for transportation in rural areas, along with resources for finding and developing information for our own plans.
Key to this document is a discussion on how to develop funding and financing plans to achieve Chaffee County's transportation goals.
The document is a bit out of date with references to Federal programs that have been replaced. However, the vast majority of the topics indeed DO apply to us.
Apologies, again, for the geek-factor!
