Staff Resources
If you are a staff person looking to bring an item to the committee, please reference the following resources.


Background
At the direction of the Mayor and City Council, the Planning Commission established a Transportation Committee in 2010. The Transportation Committee advises the Planning Commission on transportation-related plans, policies, and projects.




Charge

The Transportation Committee advises the Planning Commission on transportation planning and project decisions, and creates a transparent public forum for such discussions. The committee’s work helps the Planning Commission better integrate land use and transportation decisions as they relate to zoning, neighborhood and comprehensive planning, and infrastructure investments.  The Committee has been asked to: 
  • Implement policies and projects from the recently updated Transportation Chapter of the Comprehensive Plan. Review transportation-related zoning amendments/studies, guide new modal plans, and oversee the work of any transportation issue task forces that may be convened.
  • Review proposals on large or complex Public Works projects.
  • Assist in the review of land use recommendations in neighborhood and small area plans to ensure they are consistent with goals to expand multi-modal transportation options, and that any transportation recommendations are consistent with citywide plans and existing systems.
  • Advise, where needed, on site plans or development concepts to ensure true transportation options.
  • Review planning or design documents for consistency with “Complete Streets” approach and Universal Design guidelines.
  • Engage in regional/interagency projects. Coordinate with the regional and federal governments in transportation planning, and provide guidance for priorities on funding opportunities.

Members
The Transportation Committee consists of four Planning Commissioners, and up to eight additional community members, including people who represent the following areas of interest, or multiple interests:

  • Transit, including bus and passenger rail
  • Pedestrian/walkability issues
  • Bicyclists
  • Freight and logistics industry, including trucking, rail operations, and airports
  • Accessibility representatives or persons with disabilities
  • Representatives of commercial corridors (i.e., small business owners)
  • Downtown or business representatives.

The non-Planning Commission members are appointed by the chair of the Planning Commission. Committee members must live or work in Saint Paul and will be appointed for a term of 3 years. The Transportation Committee currently includes the following members:
  • Jim Barton
  • Christopher Bineham
  • Amber Dallman
  • Daniel Dunn   
  • Ian Houmas
  • Bill Lindeke*
  • Chris Ochs*
  • Vacant- Planning Commissioner to be appointed*
