Planning Pillars

The LRTP: Sustainable Choices 2040 has an overall mission to offer sustainable transportation choices within the region that will help balance the economic, environmental, and social aspects of ongoing urban change and development in the Champaign-Urbana urbanized area. Six planning pillars were conceptualized to define the goals and objectives of the plan. Performance measures were also summarized under each planning pillar to facilitate monitoring annual progress made toward achieving those goals and objectives during the five year period starting from 2015.

The six planning pillars include:

Safety and Security

• Resilient Economy

Multimodal Connectivity

• Accessibility and Affordability

• Healthy Neighborhoods

• Balanced Development
