GOALS & OBJECTIVES

Goals and objectives help provide direction in defining a vision as well as seek to measure the desired outcome.

 

The development of goals and objectives for the Okeechobee Blvd & SR 7 Multimodal Corridor Study began with an understanding of the Palm Beach TPA’s and Palm Tran's Mission Statement and Vision to assure an overall consistency; the initial goals and objectives are shown to the below.

 

It is important to note that as the study advances through collaborative efforts, further refinements to the goals and objectives may be made.
