Transit-Oriented Development: Sustainable Mobility and Urbanism
Charlotte, North Carolina
November 15-16, 2012
Transit-oriented development has gained traction as one of the most sustainable forms of urban planning. But the road from theory to practice is full of pitfalls. Map out the path to successful TOD with best practices from around the world. You'll explore TOD sites in metropolitan Charlotte and ideas you can bring back to your own community.
NOTE: This agenda is for informational purposes and may change. Registrants will receive the final agenda electronically before the workshop dates.
The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy is a co-sponsor of the Planners Training Service workshops.
You'll learn about:
- Transit-oriented site designs and typologies
- Transit-oriented corridors and regions — beyond the node
- The TOD marketplace — demographics, lifestyle, smart growth, and real estate
- Public policy and parking policies — ridership and economic impacts of TOD
- TOD and the "D" word: density — 5Ds of transit-oriented environments
- Transit-demand management, TOD modeling, and TOD implementation tools
- Best practices from San Diego, Portland, Dallas, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and more
