About this Talk

Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is a style of urban planning and development that maximizes residential, business + leisure space, and pedestrian activity within a half-mile walking distance of a public transit stop. This type of development is often marked by large communal squares, mixed-use pedestrian-oriented development, and hubs where people congregate rather than simply 'pass through,' such as farmers markets, small parks, and lively streets.


TOD is considered to be a sustainable, smart-growth practice because it both tackles the issue of where growth should occur and coordinates land use and transportation so that both are used efficiently.


TODs also have the ability to be a great economic engine. However, as with any development, there are potential downsides, such as transit-induced gentrification and displacement.


As Trinity Metro works to expand TEXRail and the City of Fort Worth looks to corridors like Lancaster for high capacity transit, our city has an opportunity to improve access, economic opportunities and create a sense of community while protecting the current people who live, work, and play there.


Please join us for this great discussion on Equitable Transit-Oriented Development!
