Today we announced the opening of the public comment period for nine projects proposed as part of the Community Planning Program of Projects. The RTA’s Community Planning program provides funding as well as technical assistance to applicants for implementation and planning projects that benefit the community and the regional transit system. A call for projects was held May 5 through June 29, 2017. Eligible projects include transit-oriented development (TOD) plans, transit corridor plans, TOD zoning code updates, TOD developer discussion panels, transit neighborhood mobility improvement plans, plans to develop special funding districts in transit areas, and other innovative implementation approaches. The Community Planning program strives not just to plan for the future, but to provide assistance that achieves results.

The comment period ends on September 30, 2017. Public comments on these projects may be submitted at the following e-mail address: More information on specific proposals can be found on the RTA website by clicking here.
