Regional Transitway System

Regional policies affect the development of the Twin Cities region including land use patterns and transportation system characteristics. The transitway system is an evolving component of the regional transportation system and the Bottineau Transitway is a key element of the transitway system plan.

Regional Objectives for Growth

The policies guiding the development of the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area are articulated in the 2030Regional Development Framework. Most recently updated in December 2006, the 2030 RegionalDevelopment Framework established four policies for guiding growth in the region:

Accommodate growth in a flexible, connected and efficient manner

Plan and invest in multi-modal transportation choices to slow the growth of traffic congestion and serve the region’s economic needs

Encourage expanded choices in housing locations and types, and improved access to jobs and opportunities.

Conserve, protect and enhance the region’s vital natural resources
