ABSTRACT
This article highlights the efforts of some transportation agencies in many parts of the U.S., in strengthening their land-use planning connections. The agencies cited are entrants in the 2002 Smart Moves competition, sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, the Federal Highway Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency. One of the agencies is Kentucky's Transportation Cabinet, which is applying a community-sensitive approach to planning corridors. Its philosophy is to work closely with affected communities and stakeholder groups, not only on the design of transportation facilities, but also on land-use strategies for adjacent areas.
