Brett Fusco, DVRPC Senior Transportation Planner

DVRPC staff is reviewing past scenario planning exercises, and identifying best practices to guide future scenario planning efforts. The findings will be published in a white paper this spring. This paper advises to create a scenario working group from regional stakeholders, which will identify future drivers of change, and potential regional game changer projects. The working group’s findings, analysis, and recommendations will be summarized in a short, graphic publication, incorporated into the Choices & Voices online scenario application, and will help to shape the next update to the Long-Range Plan.
