ACT’s SRED Council Helping Develop TDM Guidelines for Local Communities
March 24, 2016
Have you ever felt your TDM efforts are an afterthought, trying to cure the symptom (traffic congestion) and not the actual cause (poor land use planning)?
You are not alone. There are dozens of ACT members just like you who’ve joined the SRED Council to create communities where TDM is an integral part of the design and construction of new buildings, the planning of new communities and mixed-use developments as well as the operations of existing buildings.
The SRED Council’s priorities are to educate ACT Members, Developers, Property Managers, and local government officials, including elected officials, about the opportunities to improve how they can improve the communities they work in through TDM. We do this by:
1) Educating ACT members about the opportunities with developers and property managers seeking LEED points.
2) Creating opportunities for ACT members to connect with developers and property managers.
3) Helping local jurisdictions understand how best to implement development review policies that include TDM.
What’s New and Exciting?
Currently the SRED Council is leading the charge to publish ACT endorsed guidelines for local jurisdictions looking to incorporate TDM into their land development review process. This publication will be a major driving force behind ACT’s efforts to make public policy more local.
