Rose Fellowship Director speaks on TOD at Rail~volution
Rose Fellowship Director Gideon Berger recently spoke at the Rail~Volution Conference on a panel discussion called Planning Policy Goals: Aligning Transit Investments and TOD Strategies
Simply building transit lines doesn’t automatically provide economic, environmental and community benefits. Hear how three cities — Charlotte, Phoenix and Sacramento — aligned their broader development goals with a TOD strategy. Three case studies, presented by the ULI Rose Center for Public Leadership in Land Use, will illustrate the challenges of investing in infrastructure in historically neglected sections of town (Charlotte’s Independence Boulevard/US 74 corridor); how expectations can contribute to a climate of uncertainty near development (Phoenix’s first rail line) and how intermodal facilities can create physical barriers to development (Sacramento’s Union Pacific Railyards).
