This workshop will help planners understand how official maps may be effectively used to preserve open space, develop bicycle/pedestrian trails, and facilitate a wide range of transportation system improvements. PennDOT, together with other stakeholders, recently completed “The Official Map: A Handbook for Preserving and Providing Public Lands and Facilities.” This handbook is the latest in the PennDOT series of planning handbooks designed to assist municipalities and counties in effectively linking transportation and land use issues. This workshop will provide a broad approach to help planners and municipalities understand how the Official Map can be used to effectively manage growth, preserve open space, and address transportation needs including highway, bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The handbook includes an inventory of all Pennsylvania municipalities with official maps along with links to their maps and ordinances and contact information for sharing.
The target audience for this training includes professional planners and elected officials, municipal staff, and citizen planners who are well-versed in planning and considering creating an official map for their community. There will be ample opportunity for Q&A during the session.
