Issue Overview

The Capital Region Transportation Planning Agency (CRTPA) is responsible for coordinating transportation planning for Leon, Jefferson, Gadsden, and Wakulla counties. The focus of the CRTPA’s work is developing a regional transportation plan that moves people and goods throughout the region. The transportation plans and projects developed and approved by the CRTPA can have a significant impact on the Red Hills Region

How would this affect the Red Hills?

The introduction of roads and highways into and through the Red Hills region would fragment the landscape, degrade wildlife habitat, and encourage sprawling growth in rural areas. The current long range transportation, the 2035 Regional Mobility Plan, was developed with input from many groups including the transportation, development, conservation, and user communities. Tall Timbers’ focus throughout the development of the RMP was supporting multiple modes of transportation to move people, not simply cars, and protecting sensitive natural areas and rural landscapes from the impacts of new roadways. The 2040 Regional Mobility Plan (RMP) is now under development in a process that will take approximately 18 months.
