Here in Denver we have had a few problems with county boundaries because
Denver is a consolidated city/county. Back when they could annex, they
created weird boundaries. We have one area where the county line goes
through an apartment building! Therefore, we have a few zones that cross
county lines. We have dealt with this in the past by creating partial
zones in each county and will plan on doing that again for 2000.

Subject: [CTPP] defining TAZs
As many of you know we (MPOs) will soon be in the throws of
defining our Traffic Analysis Zones (TAZs) within our urban
areas. When working through that process one constraint,
that is new for 2000, will be that TAZs respect county
boundaries. That is, a TAZ can not cross a county
boundary. Is this something that you can live with? Will
this be a big problem for any regions?
Here in northeastern Illinois we have tended to cross over
many different political boundaries over the years but we do
respect county boundaries in our planning work.
please respond to the list (all recipients) so others may
benefit from any comments.
