2018 State of Transportation

Land use, housing and jobs

  • Adding new jobs, but are we keeping up with affordable housing and transportation choices for those new workers?
  • Lack of affordable housing pushes workers further from urban job centers -
    • Can't afford to live where they work
    • Travel longer distances
  • Fewer transportation choices on the urban fringe - people "have to drive"
  • Bedroom communities generate their own demand for services and for employees to fulfill that demand
