Due to the ongoing nature of VISION 2050, amendments may be made to the plan from time to time. In December 2018, the Regional Planning Commission adopted an amendment to VISION 2050 incorporating land use changes and transportation improvements related to the planned Foxconn manufacturing campus. As part of the plan amendment, staff also updated a financial analysis of the transportation system recommended in VISION 2050. Information on the adopted amendment is included on this page.
The Commission has also adopted two amendments to establish transportation system performance targets. This target-setting process serves to implement the Federal national performance management framework. Amendments to include the performance management process in VISION 2050 are posted on this page.
The three adopted amendments described on this page are incorporated into the Second Edition of VISION 2050, which can be found on the Report page.
VISION 2050 was adopted by SEWRPC in July 2016, prior to any knowledge of the Foxconn development that is being constructed in the Village of Mount Pleasant. Given the size and significance of this development, it was necessary to amend the plan to incorporate land use changes to accommodate additional residents and jobs related to Foxconn, and transportation improvements to serve the Foxconn manufacturing campus area. As part of the plan amendment, based on intervening changes in State funding for transportation projects, staff also revisited the analysis of existing and reasonably expected costs and revenues associated with the recommended transportation system.
FEDERAL PERFORMANCE MEASURES AMENDMENTS
The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), enacted in 2012, created a national performance management framework that established uniform performance measures and target setting to, in part, create a consistent nationwide process for monitoring the effectiveness of Federal transportation investments. SEWRPC has amended the plan for each set of measures. Appendix P of the Second Edition of VISION 2050 documents the targets amended into plan to date and can be found on the Report page.
