    o Phase 2: Feasible Trans~ortation lmorovements and Policv Alternatives. Phase 2 of the Hdlywood Transportation Plan included the identification of transportation improvements and policies which appeared to be the most feasible for implementation in H d l y w d . Combinations of improvements and policies were then developed into sets of alternatives for detailed analysis in Phase 3 of the study.

    o Phase 3: Evaluatlon of Trans~ortation Alternatives. Phase 3 of the Hollywood Transportation Plan included the evaluation of those transportation measures found to be the most effective

    , in establishing a viable transportation system to support future travel demands within Hollywood.

    o Phase 4: Recommended Plan. Through consultation with citirens, community groups, and other public agencies, the most effecthe transportation measures identified in Phase 3 of the study have been further refined and packaged into a proposed Hollywood Transportation Plan, which sets forth a comprehensive program of transportation policies and programs to meet the future mobility and access needs of the Hollywood Community.
