The national housing market has put a premium on walkable urban neighborhoods, nearly always anchored by transit. With its statewide bus system and extensive rail corridor, Rhode Island communities can take advantage of this trend. This workshop will explore the potential for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) in communities across Rhode Island, as well as current projects fitting this description and efforts coordinated by the State to encourage and support various types of TOD projects. Importantly, this workshop will attempt to demystify TOD, deliver tools to make its implementation easier on municipalities, and highlight the social and environmental issues TOD addresses.
