Overview

Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is a neighborhood where you can live, shop and work within walking distance of a transit stop.  By creating more TOD we increase the success of our transit system, access to life’s necessities for people who depend on transit and economic development.  The target of the Transit Oriented Development working group is by 2023, increase the number of completed projects scoring Gold on the St. Louis Region TOD Project Scorecard by 8, the number of completed projects scoring Bronze or higher by 15, and the number of approved projects scoring Bronze or higher by 20.

Learning Objectives

1.       Learn the context of TOD within the region and brief history of previous efforts to create TOD.

2.       Presentation of a scorecard to help evaluate proposed developments as TOD.

3.       Discussion on how planners can use and improve the scorecard.
