Compact Development Patterns in Transit-Served Districts
Activity Code: S659
Date: Wednesday, April 17
Innovative zoning and design standards can help communities form compact development around transit stations and transit corridors in existing districts. This session will explain how to use practical regulatory frameworks—particularly zoning tools—that capture the urban design principles and pedestrian orientation that are central goals of this type of development. Case studies illustrate how Boston, Albany, and Seattle used form-based codes and other tools to direct district redevelopment along expanding transit networks.
