CDRPC Local Government Workshop Webinar: Complete Streets and TOD
June 11, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Complete streets and transit oriented development (TOD) are distinct but related topics. TOD is a way of developing that is intended to encourage not just greater transit usage, but also increased walking and cycling. For this to be not just practical, but attractive to a wide audience, the streets in and around any TOD must connect to transit and be built to accommodate all modes.
Complete streets are growing in popularity around New York State as a way to improve the quality of life in our communities as well as develop our multi-modal transportation system. This presentation will provide an introduction to the role of Complete Streets programs in the social life of the community and how they allow for public gather spaces and recreation and include descriptions of several recent projects in eastern New York.
TOD offers a wide variety of benefits to communities interested in providing adequate housing for their residents at lower environmental, social, and economic costs.
While TOD is traditionally associated with heavy or light rail, the trend is towards TOD built around Bus Rapid Transit systems. This presentation will introduce TOD, discuss some of its benefits, and talk about some of the strategies necessary to achieve successful projects.
Presenters: John Lounghran and Nicole Shute, WSP USA
