About the 2015 LTA Program

CMAP has established the Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program to direct resources to communities to pursue planning work that helps to implement GO TO 2040.  In conjunction with the RTA's Community Planning program, CMAP held a call for LTA projects in spring and summer 2014.  Applications were due on June 26, 2014. memo summarizing basic application statistics, the review process, and brief overviews of submitted projects is now available. Project selection is expected in early October.   

In total, 104 applications were submitted by 77 different applicants to the LTA program.  An additional 22 applications were submitted to the RTA for consideration through their Community Planning program.  Details of the projects being reviewed by the RTA are available on their website.  

A variety of project types from across the region were submitted.  Projects addressing zoning or other regulations were the most common, with 20 submitted.  Plans that dealt with a specific corridor or subarea were also common, as were transportation plans.  A few new project types – analysis of development review processes, and capital improvement plans – were specifically solicited, and six projects of these types were received.  Project applications can be downloaded below.
