  • The Transit Supportive Land Use Report is an analysis of existing conditions and current plans and policies affecting development patterns within the proposed transit corridors. Based on this analysis and a real estate market study completed to assess future development potential, the Report also includes key recommendations that could increase the transit supportive character of the proposed transit corridors and, potentially improve their ranking for transit supportiveness based on the New Starts criteria. The recommendations focus on changes to existing land use policies and planning practices to improve the transit supportive environment within the study area. The report is available for download in various parts:
