520    Sustainable development has been highlighted as a guiding 
       principle for addressing the issues associated with rapid 
       urbanization and the environmental problems that often 
       accompany it. Although sustainability has been defined and
       discussed for almost a quarter century, operationalization
       of sustainable development has been fraught with its 
       conceptual ambiguities. The objective of this research is 
       to develop a set of spatial dynamic simulation models that
       can simulate alternative development patterns by using New
       Urbanist principles related to travel behavior such as 
       urban development with mixed land use, high density and 
       easy access to transit systems. The approach adopted for 
       this research integrates empirical and simulation methods 
       to address specific planning interventions that can lead 
       to sustainable travel behavior. A framework for examining 
       sustainability in land use and transportation relationship
       is developed with the help of an empirical model based on 
       data from the Phoenix metropolitan area. Based on the 
       result of the empirical model, spatial dynamic simulation 
       models are developed for the Phoenix area using complex 
       system theories--cellular automata and genetic algorithms.
       The simulation shows that urban sprawl and auto-dependent 
       development will continue for the Phoenix area if there is
       no planning intervention. However, alternative urban 
       development simulation shows how different planning 
       options could lead to sustainable travel behavior. The 
       results of simulation demonstrate that the models 
       developed for this study are applicable for 
       operationalizing sustainability related to land use and 
       transportation interaction. The implementation of the 
       models is expected to be a significant advance in the 
       practice of sustainable development in fast growing 
       regions like the Phoenix area
