  • Location: Flagstaff, Arizona

The greater Flagstaff area is known for its’ culture of climate stewardship and awareness. The City and the local Metropolitan Planning (MetroPlan) organization employed the assistance of B&N’s planning services to communicate and assist with their goal to significantly reduce carbon emissions by the year 2045.
As part of the regional shift away from the predominant use of motorized vehicles, B&N developed a travel demand model (TDM) to accurately account for transit, cycling, and walking trips expanding MetroPlan’s ability to assess the effectiveness of various transportation methods. This critical tool allowed the City to adequately comprehend and anticipate regional growth to integrate into the development of the Regional Transportation Plan 2045. These new features enable MetroPlan to assess the impacts of a wide array of transportation strategies and help them develop a transportation plan that will comply with their climate action goals.
Empowering MetroPlan with the proper tools to tackle their climate action goals will help the Flagstaff community maintain their sense of collective responsibility for their pristine environment.
