Sustainable Development

Purpose: 
To increase sustainable development across the North Central Texas region through a variety of program areas, campaigns, and funding opportunities.
Description: 
The sustainable development program area of NCTCOG works on a variety of program areas including; bicycle and pedestrian planning, transit-oriented development, land use and transportation planning, and community schools and transportation. The Sustainable Development Funding Program was created by its policy body, the Regional Transportation Council (RTC), to encourage public/private partnerships that positively enhance existing transportation system capacity, rail access, air quality concerns, and mixed land uses. By allocating transportation funds to land use projects promoting alternative transportation modes or reduced automobile use, NCTCOG and its regional partners are working to address escalating air quality, congestion, and quality of life issues.
