In 2019, City Council identified the development of the City’s first Multi-Modal Transportation Plan (MMTP) as a priority. The first step in addressing that priority is developing a scope of work (SOW) and associated goals for the MMTP. Staff has created a draft SOW and consultant request for proposal (RFP) for City Council consideration.

The draft SOW outlines the following in order to lay the framework for the MMTP:

  • Community engagement;
  • Existing conditions report for all modes;
  • 20 year improvements prioritized and coordinated for all modes;
  • Funding strategies;
  • Policy review;
  • Final MMTP for adoption.

The draft RFP and a summary powerpoint presentation are included in the links to the right. Staff requests City Council review these documents and provide input through the survey below.

  • The Multi-Modal Transportation Plan (MMTP) will apply primarily to local transportation planning and decisions but will include policies that may apply both locally and regionally.

    The MMTP will be data-driven and community informed, assess current conditions to identify gaps and needs, and provide policies and recommendations for improvements, including key infrastructure improvements and cost estimates. 

    The process and final recommendations should take into account the transportation factors or issues that are of importance to the City of Lafayette such as:

    • Pedestrian and bicycle safety, including safe routes to schools
    • Reducing/managing transportation demand and single occupancy vehicle use
    • Alternate modes of transportation including walking, bicycling and transit 
    • Regional travel and transportation systems 
    • Livable communities, and the nexus between land use, housing, and transportation
    • Equity and access for aging, disabled and low-income populations

    The work program focuses the consultants' efforts on: 

    • Community engagement;  
    • Existing conditions report;  
    • Project recommendation and plan development phase;   
    • Project prioritization and implementation phase; and  
    • Plan finalization and plan adoption.
