May 17, 2017

The National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board (TPB) approved $370,000 in funding for eight projects, including one from the District of Columbia, four from Maryland, and three from Virginia, through the TPB’s Transportation/Land-use Connections (TLC) Program

The TLC Program provides consultant support to local jurisdictions as they deal with the challenges of integrating land-use and transportation planning at the community level. 

“The eight projects include local planning or design studies that will help local jurisdictions develop vibrant communities that support biking, walking, and transit use,” said COG Transportation Planner John Swanson, who manages the TLC program for TPB.
