Livability Planning initiatives focus on issues that affect our daily lives and how we live, work and play. As part of a continuing, coordinated and comprehensive planning process, the Broward MPO works with local stakeholders to conduct Livability Planning Studies that result in multi-disciplinary recommendations to improve the quality of life related to:
- transportation improvements,
- land use designations,
- rezoning and design guidelines,
- business retention, expansion, and attraction,
- affordable and attainable housing.
More specifically, the recommendations address elements of the 2035 LRTP, such as the location of Mobility Hubs and transit infrastructure, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, designation of appropriate land uses, and guidelines for appropriate redevelopment and retrofitting. The MPO Livability Planning tasks are consistent with the guiding principles of the federal Partnership for Sustainable Communities. The Partnership helps American families in all communities gain better access to affordable housing, more transportation options, and lower transportation costs while simultaneously protecting the environment, promoting equitable development, and helping to address the challenges of climate change.
Hollywood Pines Corridor Project
The Broward MPO has initiated its first Congestion Management Process/Livability Planning Project along Hollywood/Pines Boulevard. The study area for this project extends one half mile to the north and south of Hollywood/Pines Boulevard from SR A1A to US 27 and includes consideration of safety and operational issues along Johnson Street at the northern boundary of the study area.
We encourage you to share and hope that people will sign up on the project website www.hollywoodpinescorridorproject.com to get involved and to keep in touch with developments.
The Broward MPO 2035 LRTP proposes three types of Mobility Hubs: Gateway, Anchor and Community.
A Mobility Hub is a place where people go to make transportation connections. More specifically, Mobility Hubs are critical points within the multi-modal transportation system, with:
- frequent transit service,
- connections for walking, biking, park-n-ride, transit, and carpooling
- proximity to areas with high development potential
- opportunities to generate transit ridership and transfers
Mobility Hubs can also provide direct connections to concentrated activities such as housing, commercial, office, and entertainment. They also present an incremental method of improving transportation and land use within the communities in a manageable and focused way.
