Webcast: Measuring Progress: Performance Metrics as a Tool in Shaping Policy
November 7, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
In a time when funding resources are scarce, it is imperative to understand and demonstrate the positive impacts of planning and implementation of transportation investments on our communities. A number of efforts including RTD’s Quality of Life Study, RTD’s TOD Program Metrics and the City of Denver’s TOD Strategic Plan have separate goals but similar methodologies. This session will discuss these programs and their applicability to projects from large scale to small scale. Participants will learn: 1. Why performance measures are important in tracking change over time. 2. How to avoid pitfalls in setting up a performance measures program. 3. Methods to convert qualitative concepts into quantitative measures. 4. How to set the stage for policy change through performance metric results. 5. How tracking TOD success over time promotes efficient use of city resources.
