Transportation Planning develops transportation policy and manages long-range plans such as the city's Transportation System Plan (TSP) and the Active Transportation Plan. The division is also responsible for implementing the city’s Context Sensitive Design Policy and leads the planning and design of complex and politically sensitive transportation projects. Transportation Planning frequently works in partnership with the Development Division and the Public Works Department to deliver transportation projects and secure funding for capital investments.
