Today we announce the award of nine projects through our Community Planning program. The work of the program supports innovative projects to improve economic development near transit and increase transit usage throughout the region by providing technical assistance to local governments and intergovernmental organizations. Through this assistance, the RTA encourages municipalities in the region to develop walkable and more sustainable communities near transit stations and along transit corridors. 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 to not just plan for the future, but to provide assistance that achieves results.

Work on these new projects will be underway by the end of 2020. More information on each project can be found here.
