Present time frame versus future land use time frame exercise (continued)
Below are a series of True and False questions based on information presented from Module 4.

1. Metropolitan Planning Organizations are a good source for existing and future land use information.

2. Expert land use panels are the first data source to consider in developing future land use scenarios for a SCEA .

3. Secondary impacts associated with transportation projects generally occur near interchanges on accesscontrolled facilities.

4. Water and sewer service areas are useful in developing future land use forecasts.

5. SHAs Regional & Intermodal Planning Division is good source of information regarding proposed large developments.

6. In a SCEA , land use is not considered a resource but a tool used to assess potential impacts to resources.

7. NWI Wetlands mapping is a good source for land use mapping.

8. In situations where two or more different future land use scenarios are proposed for the same alternative, it may be helpful to form an expert land use panel to build concurrence on a single land use scenario.

9. When developing present and future land use, individual home construction and/or small subdivisions are not considered major events, but may be the result of such events.
