L.A.'s MTA CEO Says TOD

The CEO of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority recently told a crowd of L.A. city officials that increasing transit oriented development is high on his list of goals.

"'With sprawl, I think we've proved without a shadow of a doubt that this isn't working anymore,' Metropolian Transportation Authority CEO Roger Snoble told the crowd. 'That's where transit-oriented development comes in.'"

"The MTA plans to break ground on more than a dozen transit-oriented developments in the next couple years, according to Snoble."

"Current plans include a handful of low-income housing complexes in and around Boyle Heights along the Eastside extension of the Gold Line."

"Snoble said building mixed-income residential projects along transit hubs is a first step to easing congestion and parking woes in Los Angeles."
