Transportation Facilities Plan

The Transportation Facilities Plan is the city’s 12-year, intermediate-range, transportation planning document. It includes high-priority projects from long-range plans (such as the Downtown Transportation Plan Update, the Transit Master Plan and the Ped-Bike Plan) and projects that address emerging needs and opportunities. See below for additional background information on the TFP.

The city is in the process of updating the current TFP. Work by the Transportation Commission and city staff began in September 2017. Tasks have included identifying candidate projects, establishing criteria for project evaluation and developing a prioritized list of recommended projects. 

To collect feedback from the public, open houses were held at three locations in late March 2018, and an online survey was conducted. A report on Public Outreach and Public Comments was completed and presented to the Transportation Commission.

Background on TFP

Typically updated every two to three years, the Transportation Facilities Plan is a "financially constrained" plan; the identified cost of the projects in the TFP must be balanced with the city’s transportation revenue projections for the 12-year plan period. Some projects listed in the TFP include funding allocations for initial development or partial implementation only.

The TFP serves several functions:

  • It provides the first level of project prioritization necessary to identify projects for funding in the adopted, seven-year Capital Investment Program (CIP) Plan.
  • It serves as the basis for the city’s Impact Fee Program. Roadway and intersection capacity projects adopted in the TFP are used to calculate impact fees charged for new developments.
  • The impact fees cover a portion of the costs to increase transportation system capacity needed to serve the demand generated by new developments (information on impact fees).

An environmental review is conducted in conjunction with each TFP update. The review considers potential, cumulative impacts to the citywide transportation system and other aspects of the environment that may occur during the 12 years covered by the plan.
