ST-10: Shape development through transportation planning
Support effective planning and implementation of transit-oriented developments (TOD) at the local and regional levels—in coordination with the effective planning and provision of transit services and stations—to maximize ridership, economic development, and other desired outcomes.
Consider transit and land use issues at the system, corridor, and station levels, as well as the evaluation of adequate infrastructure such as water and sewer mains, when planning for TOD.
Create and refine station area plans and develop policies to streamline approval processes involving TOD.
Ensure the equitable distribution of the benefits of TOD and premium transit services (i.e., high-quality transit, either rail or bus, that reduces transit travel times, enhances regional connectivity, and provides improved vehicles and transit amenities to attract customers), including through the retention or incorporation of affordable and workforce housing in TODs.
