You'll learn about:

  • How to identify the different needs of suburban and urban communities for TOD
  • How to get the right  mix of housing and economic development in a TOD
  • How to incorporate parking into a successful TOD

Learn about the land-use mix, density, ridership, and parking necessary to develop a successful transit-oriented development (TOD) and examine hot-button issues associated with TODs, such as parking requirements, economic development, financing techniques, and housing mix. Representatives from two New Jersey communitiesthe City of Rahway and the Borough of Somervillewill discuss differences involved in developing a TOD in urban and suburban settings. A developer, a New Jersey Transit representative, a TOD developer, and a transit-agency representative will add their viewpoints to the discussion as well.
