What is the Toolkit for and how do I use it?
The Marin Pedestrian and Transit-Oriented Design Toolkit was developed as part of the Transportation and Land Use Solutions program in Marin County to help local planners, engineers, elected officials, and private citizens work together to develop new and coordinated approaches to addressing some of the County’s most pervasive transportation and land use challenges. The Toolkit is intended to be a “living document” that can be updated and further developed over time as new opportunities and knowledge arise and as members of Marin’s community continue to find solutions and tools to existing and future challenges. The binder format was selected for the Toolkit so that new or supplemental information gleaned from references contained in the Toolkit or other sources can be added. In fact, it is hoped that users of the Toolkit from different jurisdictions will take the initiative not only to add to their own Toolkit, but also to share their updates, additions, and successful local projects with their peers around the County. One of the most important findings during the development of this Toolkit was that many creative strategies were already being employed in some part of Marin County. As jurisdictions share many of the challenges that arise from Marin’s unique character and community structure, so too can creative and successful solutions be shared among neighbors and peers. Similarly, the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) will continue to enhance the Toolkit through the periodic release of updates of individual tools or entire sections. Such updates may be brought to local jurisdictions and stakeholders through “Toolkit News Alerts” that advise of the availability of electronic Toolkit updates at the TAM’s website. This stewardship of the Toolkit allows the TAM to stay involved in realizing transportation and land use related improvements and in catalyzing the sharing of information, tools, strategies, and success stories around the County.
