LCI Program a National Model

Dan Reuter, ARC Land Use Division Chief made a presentation at the Transportation Research Board (TRB) 89th Annual Meeting – January 10-14, 2010 in Washington, D.C.  The title of the presentation was “ARC’s Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) – a National Model”.  The LCI program continues to be viewed as one of the best regional examples in the nation of how resources can be provided to local governments to implement strategies that link land use, housing and transportation investments.  LCI not only supports better alignment of land use with existing transportation infrastructure but also is a primary action undertaken by ARC to implement regional plans.

LCI has also been listed as a model program on the US DOT- Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Livable and Sustainable Communities web page. The website highlight’s FTA programs that fit into the larger US DOT Livability Initiative and the Federal Sustainable Communities Partnership.  The Sustainable Communities Partnership includes US DOT, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) working together to provide citizens with access to affordable housing, more transportation options, and lower transportation costs, while protecting the environment in communities nationwide.   The LCI program is listed on the website as the first item under “Livability Case Studies and Outreach” on the FTA website.  For more information see the following link: http://fta.dot.gov/publications/publications_10935.html
