The Computerized Transportation/Financial Planning Process (CTFP) comprises a battery of programs that collectively form a valuable growth management tool. CTFP incorporates four spreadsheet analysis programs: (1) Transportation Planning/Analysis Database (TPAD), (2) Impact Fee Analysis Database (IFAD), (3) Financial Analysis Database (FAD), and (4) Capital Improvement Program Database (CIPD). Together, these databases can provide local staff and officials, as well as private landowners with an overview of transportation needs and cost projections and an understanding of the impact of potential technical and policy decisions on the many variables within the transportation planning and financing process. This paper focuses on two of the spreadsheets: the Transportation Planning/Analysis Database and the Impact Fee Analysis Database.
