Transportation Facilities Plan

The Transportation Facilities Plan (TFP) serves as the city’s 12-year, intermediate-range, transportation planning document. It includes high-priority projects from long-range plans (such as the Downtown Transportation Plan Update, Transit Master Plan and Ped-Bike Plan) and projects that address emerging needs and opportunities.
Typically updated every two to three years, the Transportation Facilities Plan is a "financially constrained" plan; the identified cost of the projects in the TFP must be balanced with the city’s transportation revenue projections for the 12-year plan period. Some projects listed in the TFP include funding allocations for initial development or partial implementation only.
The Transportation Facilities Plan serves several functions:
It provides the first level of project prioritization necessary to identify projects for funding in the adopted, seven-year Capital Investment Program (CIP) Plan.
It serves as the basis for the city’s Impact Fee Program. The roadway and intersection capacity projects adopted in the TFP are used to calculate impact fees charged to new land use developments. The fees cover a portion of the costs to increase transportation system capacity needed to serve the demand generated by new developments (information on impact fees).
An environmental review is conducted in conjunction with each TFP update. The environmental review considers potential, cumulative impacts to the citywide transportation system and other elements of the environment that may occur due to 12 years of projected land use growth and the implementation of the projects identified in the TFP.
