UVA's Julia Monteith & Rebecca White

On October 17, 2007, the Policy Board of the Metropolitan Planning Organization held their monthly meeting [agenda]. The main item of business was a report on the new University of Virginia Transportation Demand Management Plan.  Julia Monteith of the University Architect's Office and Rebecca White, Director of Parking and Transportation delivered the presentation for UVA. 

In other business, the MPO endorsed a grant application related to the Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center who is seeking state funding for a trail and ferry system along the Rivanna River.  The MPO also finalized the language for their annual priority statement to be delivered to the Commonwealth Transportation Board on November 1st.

Monteith and White reported on the completion of the first of what will be two phases of the UVA TDM Plan. According to Monteith, TDM is "the art of influencing travel behavior for the purpose of reducing the demand for single occupant vehicle use."  Phase I is the conceptual plan of possible strategies that is intended to inform UVA's master plan.  The future Phase II will be a model for implementation.

Charlottesville Tomorrow has produced a 50 minute slide show of the TDM presentation.
