Street Plans contributed to a multi-phase comprehensive planning effort for the City of El Paso, Texas, as it seeks to update its Comprehensive Plan and vision for a variety of multi-modal transportation projects. In collaboration with Dover Kohl and Partners, Street Plans joined the charrette team for the first phase of the three-phase project to help calibrate the SmartCode for select Transit-Oriented Development Areas surrounding the existing and proposed Bus Rapid Transit stations. Street Plans also helped the Charrette team formulate a vision for each TOD site, contributing to infill master plans produced substantially at the first visioning charrette. These plans included implementing a multi-modal vision intended to guide future municipal investment in not just transit, but an increase in bicycle and pedestrian mode share.
