FREE Lunchtime Webinar: Planning for TOD – A Way to Transform your Community
August 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Hosted by APA Pennsylvania Chapter
Transit-oriented development (TOD) capitalizes on public transit access by transforming underutilized spaces into walkable and sustainable communities with a mix of land uses, a vibrant public realm, and excellent connectivity to transit amenities. MCPC will highlight its model TOD ordinance and guidebook, which focuses on supporting thoughtfully designed mixed-use development around the county’s 49 diverse transit stations. The model ordinance also contains helpful information for communities seeking to encourage walkable, mixed-use development outside of station areas.
This webinar session will provide an overview of TOD as a planning concept that benefits communities through emphasizing increased use of alternative modes of transportation and encouraging sensitive infill development within walking distance of transit amenities.
