Request for Proposals - Transportation Demand Management



Mr. Chairman: As you and our colleagues are aware, Transportation System Management (TSM) and Transportation Demand Management (TDM) have been topics of discussion in Providence District for the last few years. After a recent meeting with staff on this subject, I feel it is time that our County takes a serious look at ways to make TDM part of the overall "package" in land use and development in Fairfax County.

I offer this Board Matter in the same spirit as the pedestrian improvements initiative was discussed in July 2002. At that time, the Board of Supervisors initiated a comprehensive Pedestrian Program for Fairfax County and provided dedicated resources to meet specific goals. Consideration of TDM is also in concert with the Chairman's Transportation Plan and also recent resolutions approved by the Planning Commission.

Therefore, I move that the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, Department of Transportation, Department of Planning and Zoning, Office of the County Attorney and other agencies as appropriate form a staff working group to examine:

  • Best practices in TDM
  • What we as a County are currently doing with regard to this subject
  • Recommendations for what we need to do
  • Budget requirements, obstacles and considerations
  • Opportunities for inclusion of this subject in the upcoming Transportation Plan Update

At the conclusion of this analysis, I move that this working group report back to the Board with recommendations on this subject and at that time, the Board further act on this matter.
