Transportation and Sustainable Communities
The Transportation and Sustainable Communities threshold is designed to reduce reliance on the automobile, support the attainment of the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) reduction goals of California and Nevada, and increase mobility.
TRPA’s unique planning authority allows it to closely coordinate land use (Regional Plan) and transportation (Regional Transportation Plan) planning. The two plans work together to provide visitors and residents with alternatives to personal automobile travel and reduce VMT. For more than twenty years the focus of both has been supporting compact, mixed-use development, and walkable, bikeable, transit-friendly communities.
