This policy is to provide for consistency in preparation of Transportation Impact Studies using established criteria. It has been prepared for the purpose of assisting consultants, developers and others interested in evaluating transportation impacts within the City of Tempe. Consultants are invited to discuss proposed projects with Transportation Division staff prior to beginning the analysis. Doing so will provide an opportunity to discuss and determine parameters to be used and open a communication link between city staff and the developer/consultant. This communication will help in creating landuses with transportation characteristics that are in the best interest of the entire community.
