Regional Planning and Economic Modeling: A Dialogue with Leading Experts

As technology, regulation and industries rapidly change, regional planning councils (RPCs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), councils of government (COGs) and other transportation planning organizations are facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities in leveraging their regional assets for broad-based economic growth.

Often the core objectives of these organizations, such as planning and prioritizing for transportation investments or assessing housing needs, relies on regional economic forecasting and simulation tools.

Please join us for a guest webinar on Tuesday, August 29 from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. EST  to discuss the role that macroeconomic modeling and analysis plays in the planning process for some of REMI’s most innovative transportation planning clients. We are pleased to be joined by:

  • Cynthia Kroll, Chief Economist and Assistant Planning Director, Association of Bay Area Governments, Developing Long-range Forecast for Evaluating Future Housing and Transportation Demands
  • Colby Lancelin, Research & Analytics, Atlanta Regional Commission, Quantifying Economic Impacts of Alternative Transportation Investments and Prioritizing Constrained Spending
  • Colin Belle, Metropolitan Planner, Region 1 Planning Council, Integrating Planning Models to Better Understand How Ttransportation, Land-use and Economic Systems Interact

Their talks will cover the development of a long-term employment and population projection, the process to select spending projects base on their distinct economic impacts, and the ability to incorporate economic impacts with land-use modeling.

Following the presentation, REMI staff and our three presenters will be available for Q&A.

The presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer it at no charge via the Citrix GotoWebinar web conferencing platform. Advanced registration is required; please click here to register.
