In September 2012, the NADO Research Foundation published Aligning Strategies to Maximize Impact: Case Studies on Transportation and Economic Development (PDF).  Ten case studies from 11 states document how regional planning and economic development organizations are taking steps to coordinate planning processes and investment strategies, partner with new entities to improve outreach and implementation, document progress through metrics, and communicate results in an engaging way.

Projects from regional organizations across the United States demonstrate how the fields of transportation and economic development can complement each other and create an environment for increased collaboration and aligning of resources. Achieving multiple goals with a single project offers significant benefits as budget concerns continue to impact regional planning.

This report was produced through the NADO Research Foundation’s Center for Transportation Advancement and Regional Development under a cooperative agreement with the Federal Highway Administration.
