Railyard Enterprise Project Supplemental Scoping Final Report

4.8 MB
Year:
2020
Theme:
Transportation
Description:
In early 2013, the City of Burlington, in partnership with the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission and in close cooperation with the Vermont Agency of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration, initiated the Railyard Enterprise Project (REP). The REP aims to address multimodal safety, mobility, and operational transportation issues and to advance economic development opportunities in the southern waterfront area of Burlington by improving access and mobility through new urban streets. The REP followed an enhanced scoping process under FHWA’s Every Day Counts/Planning and Environmental Linkages (EDC/PEL) initiative. The result of the REP Scoping Study was the selection, by the Burlington City Council, of three REP alternatives to advance into preliminary engineering and permitting under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), a process required for using federal funds to finance transportation projects. This REP Supplemental Scoping Study is a follow-on to the REP Scoping Study and its goal is to further refine and evaluate one of those alternatives, Alternative 1B, and to explore the feasibility of implementing the project without federal funding, using state and local funds only, thereby needing to conduct a complex, lengthy, and costly NEPA process.

I-89 Exit 12 Transportation Improvement District (TID)

3.3 MB
Year:
2019
Theme:
Impact Fees, Municipal Planning, Transportation
Description:
The CCRPC worked alongside the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and the Town of Williston to evaluate the feasibility of creating a Transportation Improvement District (TID) at the Exit 12/Taft Corners area in Williston, VT. In 2014, the Vermont General Assembly passed Act 145 (H.740) which establishes a Transportation Impact Fee that may be required by an Agency of Natural Resources District Environmental Commission (DEC) or by VTrans to help pay for transportation improvements that directly benefit proposed or future developments. One mechanism by which Transportation Impact Fees can be assessed is through a TID. RSG was retained by CCRPC to analyze and evaluate the potential TID in this area and identify a pathway toward implementation.
