BACKGROUND

In February 2019, the City of Dallas, through the Department of Transportation, established an 18-month service agreement, with a consulting firm to assist in the development of the City's first-ever Five-Year SMP.

The City of Dallas and partner agencies developed many plans and studies that improved access to multimodal transportation in Dallas. However, the City lacked a comprehensive strategic vision for transportation that emphasizes integrated transportation decision-making with housing, economic vitality, equity, environmental sustainability, innovation, safety and multimodal transportation, which are the foundation of the driving principles.

The SMP will establish the five-year strategic vision for transportation that will provide the following:

* Establish the driving principles for transportation in Dallas that will inform policy, program, and project investment decisions.
* Establish a framework for evaluating the impact of transportation investments on the driving principles.
* Identify the preferred transportation investment strategy for the City that supports the driving principles and advances integrated transportation, housing, economic vitality, equity, environmental sustainability, innovation, safety and multimodal transportation decision-making.
* Recommend transportation-related policy changes necessary to realizing the community's preferred strategy.
