RURAL COUNTIES TASK FORCE

PERFORMANCE MONITORING INDICATORS STUDY

In coordination with Kittelson & Associates, Mintier Harnish assisted the California Rural Counties Task Force in conducting a study to identify metrics for rural and small urban regions for incorporation into the California Transportation Commission’s (CTC) 2016 State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) guidelines. Performance metrics for evaluating and monitoring regional transportation plans and projects had been oriented toward larger urban regions in the state. This study evaluated the metrics that were developed for these urban regions for their applicability to rural and small urban regions, and then developed a list of appropriate performance metrics that achieve the monitoring objectives of the CTC/STIP guidelines and reflect the unique conditions of the state’s non-urban regions.
