Metro is collaborating with the Los Angeles Regional Collaborative for Climate Action and Sustainability (LARC) to develop a Transit Supportive Planning Toolkit that provides local municipalities with policy and regulatory tools to encourage implementation of transit oriented developments (TOD) in their jurisdictions. The Toolkit provides best practices, land use policies, sample ordinances, and other strategies that can be used by local municipalities to develop and adopt transit-supportive land use and zoning regulations.
Metro is conducting a series of informational workshops in late July and August 2016 to preview the Toolkit and obtain feedback on the content of the project. The workshops are geared towards local city and county planning department staff, as well as regional agency staff, city planning commissioners, and members of neighborhood or planning advocacy organizations.
The workshops will include informational presentations on the content and tools contained in the Toolkit, with opportunities to ask questions and receive feedback from attendees about the situations faced in their cities.
The Toolkit is a component of a countywide climate action and sustainability plan entitled "A Greater Los Angeles, the Framework for Regional Climate Action and Sustainability" being developed by LARC. The LARC framework will provide Los Angeles County with regional policy direction, coordinated strategic planning, and best management practices for climate change mitigation and adaption strategies.
