Equitable Development: TOD in a Distressed Economy
Equitable development starts with a commitment to robust community engagement, continues with strategic public investments to "prime the pump," and ends with development that meets community needs and allows investors to make a buck or two. Learn how public and private partners can work together to lay the groundwork to finance and deliver TOD in the face of a distressed local development market. In Minneapolis: A community along a future BRT corridor plans for future investments in transportation, economic development, housing and placemaking. In Pittsburgh: A diverse community adjacent to a busway station attracts public and private investments for a successful project. In Phoenix, nonprofits working together to ready publicly-owned property for development and create a loan program to bring affordable and market rate residential mixed use to the light rail.
