SUMMARY This portfolio describes the projects which both UMTA and the five cities should initiate in Phase II of the Center City Transpor- tation Project (CCIP). It identifies the purpose and significance of each project, and its relevance to both the city and the Urban Mass Transportation Administration. Thus, the portfolio provides a basis for agreement and actions on specific Center City transportation projects. PROJECT SELECTION The projects which have been selected build upon the insights, experiences, and rapport gained during Phase I. They reflect extensive reconnaissance and dialogue in each city, and the cooperative working relationships which have been established with local officials. These projects have been identified by the cities as meeting their Center City transportation needs. Each project has been reviewed and endorsed by the top professional staffs of all four firms in the group - - Arthur D. Little, oe Skidmore, Owings and Merrill; Real Estate Research Corporation; and Wilbur Smith and Associates - and by each city's technical staff. The projects were selected by the cities and CCTP through an extensive screening of the many candidate improvements identified in Phase I. They eediede bork city needs and national program requirements. Projects selected represent: A. Commonality of Solutions - relevance and tranferability of methods and results to National transportation problems. , , B. Innovative and Imaginative Solutions - breakthroughs in technological approaches to transportation problems. C. Institutional Changes - new institutions to establish ways of relating public and private resources to transportation programs and projects. D. Solutions to Center City Problems - solutions that solve specific Center City transportation problems within a regional framework. E. Reflection of Planning Goals - projects which are consistent with Center City transportation planning principles. F. Application of Project Selection Criteria - projects which reflect specific National and local criteria. G. Relevance to National Guidelines - useful examples for National policy statements. The 17 projects selected for action in Phase II of the Center City Transportation Project are described in Table 1. Six quick-action projects are to be implemented prior to June of 1970; eleven will be in some stage of construction by 1972. Atlanta 1.

Commonality of Solutions The projects have many elements in Cound in their approaches to solving existing and emerging Center City transportation needs. These - identified in Table 2 - reflect the basic strategy of the CCTP program which favors, where possible, National market aggregation. They include both quick-action and longer-term, more innovative solutions. Quick- action programs are envisioned ds first-stage solutions to the introduction of longer-range, new technologies. The particular combination of quick- action projects and longer-range demonstrations for a given city is tailored to that city's political and institutional structure. This strategy: e Reflects the auto orientation of the Center City and the need for efficient public and private transport services. e Indicates the demand for efficient transfer of people between car, bus and street. r © Recognizes parking as a key element in Center City transportation. © Emphasizes the impogtance of the pedestrian in the Center City. e Creates an evolutionary approach toward new system development. - Atlanta Project Intercept: Stage A Project Intercept: Stage B Bus Circulation Improvements Transitway Experiment Dallas Transportation Terminals Goods Distribution Network Center City Circulation System Denver Shuttle Bus Loop Mile-High Stadium - Center City Bus Service Terminal and Distribution Facilities Pittsburgh Shuttle Bus: Stadium.- CBD - Arena Center City - Hill District - Oakland Bus Service Transit and Street Improvements Center City Distribution Seattle Mini-Bus Service East-West People-Mover Parking Terminals TABLE 2 PROJECTS CATEGORIZED BY COMMONALITY OF SOLUTIONS Quick-Action Projects = Parking Hew bas Street and Technology; Shuttle ‘ Expressway Design and ‘ Bus . Adaptation Information Systems X X X X X xX Xx x Xx x x X X x X xX x “ ' x xX X x e Terminals People- Movers, Walkway Systems Longer Term Projects Goods Movement Center City Rapid Transit Distri- bution Quick-action The quick-action solutions recognize that in all five cities rubber-tired technology (buses) will remain the dominant line- - haul mode for the next decade. Consequently, the Center City street system must be readjusted to more effectively accommodate bus flows. - The quick-action projects - involving parking-shuttle bus systems, new bus technology, and street and expressway adaptation - are concerned with this adjustment. (a) Shuttle-bus services - The use of shuttle-bus operations to provide access from peripheral parking areas to the office- commercial core, to improve circulation within the core, and to provide linkages between major activity. centers. (b) Circulation improvements - The re-evaluation of the Center City circulation system, to identify potential opportunities to improve the flows of buses, automobiles, pedestrians, and trucks; to separate the various types of traffic; to develop street specialization or closure programs; and to promote desirable developmental patterns.” (c) Information systems - The development and application of new types of graphic displays to permit transit riders to determine where they are and how best to reach their destinations. The quick-action projects will be implemented with full recognition of the need for the introduction of new technological solutions, involving other than automobile or bus technologies. The longer term projects are intended to serve this need. Longer term solutions: These solutions include the introduction of modified or new technologies, the development of new institutional =§= structures, and the introduction of new planning and development strategies. Opportunities exist for the introduction of people’ movers, modal transfer points, and fringe parking developments, integrated with Joint Development whenever practical. The impacts of such improve- ments could produce more efficient land tee pureeras and create an improved Center City environment. Accordingly, longer term solutions emphasize the commonality of: Multi-modal Transportation Terminals - Terminals which create integrated eC downtown transportation centers for transfer between bus, rapid transit, auto, and pedestrian movement systems. Terminals which also afford excellent Joint Development opportunities. People-Movers - New Center City-scaled systems which move people, relate transpor- tation terminals to downtown land uses and provide Joint Development opportunities. Rapid transit -. Rapid transit, when introduced, is | = : , _ to form an integral part of transportation terminals and people- -movers. B. Innovative and Imaginative Solutions The potential for innovation in quick-action projects is severely limited by the time constraints. There is a greater opportunity and need for such innovation in the longer-range time period, where the improvements can be developed as an integral and functional part of new commercial-office complexes. Such facilities as people- movers, pedesexten walkways, specialized malls, Joint Developments, terminal areas, and wide variety of complementary activities must be considered if a new and improved Center City environment is to emerge. The projects selected allow for innovation and imagination in the application of both new and exising technologies. They reflect the following types of innovation: Improved Bus Technology --- Upgraded services through the use of exclusive lanes and streets and improved routings --- More attractive and functional vehicle design. --- Low pollutant propulsion systems for buses. — New information systems, signing techniques (graphic displays) and bus stop designs. =10= Pedestrian and People-Mover --- New climate controlled Technologies , walkway systems which separate pedestrian and vehicle traffic --- New Center City scaled movement systems which serve intermediate volume ranges. Terminal Technology ; --- New designs for sinietee svetems in relation to expressways, bus service, and Joint Development. The multi-modal transportation terminal offers an opportunity to unite all of these ekchncldetes in one place in the Center City. By designing these terminals for all modes and relating them to Joint Development, it becomes possible to create a " structure for mobility" which will help to free the downtown for the pedestrian. C. Institutional Changes Though commonality and new technology are essential, institutional changes are also required. Projects reflect the eeitisnete categories of institutional changes: 1. New techniques for planning and programming Center City and regional transportation needs. 2. New techniques for administering and operating all modes of transportation in the Center City. 3. New techniques for administering Joint Development projects as related to transportation improvements. 4. New techniques for financing Center City transportation. ‘~ D. Center City Transportation Solutions =l1- The projects described in this portfolio focus on the Center City. Each project is designed to complement regional transportation systems. Many important, highly visible line-haul and regional public transpor- tation ‘systems are being developed by local and regional planning groups. The CCTP projects are carefully coordinated with the officially adopted plans where they interact with Center City transportation. These locally generated plans include the following: | The Atlanta Rapid Transit Proposal (1969) The Dallas Rapid Transit Proposal (1968) The Denver Regional Bus System Bevelopnent (In Progress) The Pittsburgh "Early-Action Program" - a system of two exclusive busways and a 10-mile line of the Transit Expressway ("Skybus") technology The Seattle Rapid Tranist Proposal (1968) E. Center City Transportation Planning Principles . Certain Center City transportation planning principles underlie project formulation. Public transportation ihozovenakke must be guided by a multi-disciplined planning process that is responsive to each city's needs. 1. All transportation improvements must be developed within a total Center City planning framework, which complements the regional transportation facilities providing line-haul access to the Center City. To justify capital improvements, projects must be part of a plan. -12- Center City transportation improvements must be multi- modal. It is essential to coordinate highways, public transport, pedestrian micro-systems, goods movement, and terminal facilities. Street and highway-related improvements are necessary to allow more effective and innovative use of public transportation to facilitate development of pedestrian ways, and to improve fratPic flow. Efficient radial or line-haul public transportation services play an important role in bringing people to the Center City, in atttaetias present automobile users, and in relieving street congestion. Consequently, line-haul transportation improve- ments provide an important framework for Center City circulation and distribution systems. Transportation terminals which encourage the convenient transfer of people from line-haul transit facilities to Center City circulation systems are an increasingly important part of. beee City transportation and iret h nade plaea, Pedestrian movement systems — including people-movers - should effectively link major activity centers. These linkages are essential for the economy and amenity of the Center City. The multiple use of urban space at transportation terminals, and along Center City transport routes, can produce both urban amenity and economic advantage. Such Joint Developments have been successfully achieved in’Montreal's subway stations and in Tokyo's joint highway and commercial facility. a3e The environmental improvement opportunities created by new . transportation systems should be realized in both the new facilities themselves and the adjacent areas. Solutions should add to the amenity of the city in several ways: e By creating such well-designed open spaces as malls, plazas, walkways,and gathering places. o By integrating transportation facilities with commercial and office developments. o By developing special-function streets, reducing or eliminating conflicts between pedestrian, vehicle and - transit movements. e By increasing the accessibility for pedestrians to a variety of commercial and complementary opiOEEanAcrEd: All of these can combine to make the transit ride itself inviting to the passenger - an attractive vehicle providing the passenger with a pleasant visual sequence experience en route to a well-designed, person-oriented Center City. =th= F. Project Selection Criteria The following broad criteria have been used as a basis for project selection. They reflect National policy Po qutrenenies and local needs, as well as environmental, economic, social, and transportation considerations. Individual projects are related to these ericerds in Table 3. These evaluations have pees made a priori to detailed feasibility seudied: Consequently, some refinement of both criteria and evaluations is likely during the Phase II CCTP efforts. 1. Local Criteria Need - The project serves a recognized Center City transportation need. | Support - The project has the endorsement of established local public and private leadership. Commitment - the local public and/or private agencies have extended their endorsement of the project to include specific allocations of funds and/or personnel. Implementability - The foiece can be initiated or placed into service with the designated time periods. Consistency - The project is compatible with existing and committed regional transportation facilities, and with longer-range planning objectives. 21:5= Economic and Social Criteria Increased Joint Development Opportunities - The project will provide opportunities for coordinated land-use and transportation developments. Increased City Revenues - The project is expected to lead to increased city revenues through intensive economic activities and increases in land values, the real property ae base, and/or development of direct-revenue generating activities (such as lease holds). Increased Employment Opportunities - The project is expected to provide increased employment opportunities or offset project employment declines primarily through improved accessibility between labor pools and employment concentrations and increased manpower requirements related to Joint Development projects. Service for Economically Disadvantaged Groups - The project is expected to improve the mobility of people to whom automobile travel is not available, including low and lower-middle income families, the handicapped, the elderly and the young. Environmental Criteria New Urban Development Options - The project is expected to stimulate new public and private developments in the Center City and its environs. Increased Attractiveness, Diversity and Variety - The project is expected to improve the quality of life in Center City areas by increasing the compatability of the environment and the transportation system. -16-

H. Underwood, Member Don Ingram, Central Atlanta Progress , The Grant Review Board has reviewed the proposal entitled "Study Design for the Central Atlanta Planning Process.'' We find that to conduct this proposed study is in the best economic and physical development interests of the City. At the present time we can find no conflict with other studies and activities, nor do we find any duplication of effort. We believe that all the coordination necessary at this time has been achieved. Further, indications are that an adequate amount of coordination will be maintained by the agencies involved during the course of the study. We have examined the City's portions of the proposed funding for the study and find everything to be in order. The City's cash share amounts agree with the amounts listed in the Planning Department's 1969 budget for these purposes. Further, the Planning Department is prepared to make the necessary staff commit- ments to generate the required non-cash credits. The recommendation of the Grant Review Board is that the Mayor forward the above mentioned proposal, along with a suitable letter to the Secretaries of the Department of Transportation and the Department of Housing and Urban Develop- ment, The Mayor's transmittal letter should request their review, approval and determination of the most appropriate federal funding program to be used in financing this study. Upontheir reply, the City should submit a formal application to the appropriate department under the program specified. A copy of the Central Atlanta Action Program Outline is attached.

  • Text: rs a April 30, 1969 Honorable Lawrence M. Cox, Assistant Secretary for Renewal and Housing Assistance Department of Housing and Urban Development Washington, D. C. 20410 Dear Larry: Time has a way of slipping up on all of us. It seems like only yesterday that you and your staff in Norfolk, Fred Fay, Allen Charles, Gene Arrington, the remainder of the Virginia Association of NAHRO, and I were one big family in Virginia. Wow, the family has scattered in several directions but it's all for the best. I have seen several of the *old family" on occasion at the Southeastern Regional Council of NAHRO meetings, but missed seeing you. When I was vacationing with my folks at Virginia Beach recently, I heard that you might be appointed Assistant Secretary for Renewal and Housing Assistance. I was delighted at the prospects as no one individual ia more capable or knowledgeable with present and past national housing legislation than you, other than Senator Sparkman and former Representative Albert Raines. Congratulations to a most worthy deserver and best wishes for success in your new endeavor. For the past five years, it has been my good fortune to have been with a great Mayor and to contribute (hopefully) in the development of a very progressive city. Federal funds are certainly no stranger to thie city. In fact, we publicly extoll the fact that we would not have accomplished what we have without federal financial assistance -- and the citizens know it! The major risk we run, of course, is one of building up their expectations to the point at which neither this city nor the Federal government can ever hope to deliver. But, it is a risk we must take, as the alternatives are mighty slim. ) Z% Hon. Lawrence M. Cox -2- April 30, 1969 If you have not been to Atlanta recently, do come. It is well worth a trip. Again, congratulations on your appointment. If I can do anything to help make your assignment a little easier, feel free to count on me for assistance. Kindest personal regards. Sincerely yours, George L. Aldridge, Jr., Director Community Improvement Program City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 GLAJr..bea P.S. Am unusual CBD study proposal for Atlanta was submitted jointly to HUD and DOT during the transition period of the Johnson and Nixon Administrations. A local contingent is coming up to Washington on May 7th to inquire into its status. Collier Gladin, our Planning Director, and Dan Sweat, Mayor's Assistant, will be with this group. Anything you can do to be of assistance here would be most appreciated.

Sweat, Jr. Chief Administrative Officer City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dan: Secretary of Transportation Volpe is coming to Atlanta on January 23rd to be speaker at our Annual Meeting at the Regency. We have been asked to make the arrangements for a big day that would expose him to the broad Atlanta transportation picture and the local leadership to him and his programs. I've gotten the 0.K. from Lockheed for the C-5A flight and tour. The Highway Department likes the "workshop" proposal, and will work with us on it. Since this brings together a good group of people on a subject of importance to all Atlantans, at an early date in the new Mayor's administration, we especially want him to be with us and to take an active part in this important occasion. I just wanted to give you this advance information and to let you know that we'll need your help to make this a success. Sincerely, RWB/sr
