Abstract

The Locational Decision Model can be used to aid the private sector when making a choice in locations for a new development and to the public sector when making long-tange planning decisions for the future growth of the areas within its jurisdiction. The Model provides developers, planners, and local decision-makers a step by step process to evaluate the suitability of a location for a proposed land use activity. From the amount and direction of existing and future traffic volumes, a location's role in contributing to a land use's potential viability, probable success, and possible influence in altering future development of surrounding areas can be assessed.
