Abstract: This paper presents a new approach to land-use planning and transportation planning that provides regional planners with a means to achieve their goals without infringing upon local autonomy. The approach focuses on facilitating cooperation between city and regional planners. This is accomplished through two sequential stages: (1) the regional-planning stage and (2) the city-planning stage. In both stages, land-use planning and transportation planning are cast as multiobjective design problems and solved with a genetic algorithm. An example of the approach is presented using data for a medium-sized metropolitan region and a city within it.
