Carrion Promotes "Generous Zoning Around Transit Hubs"

Director of the White House Office of Urban Policy Adolfo Carrión says that The White House wants to encourage the creation of "neighborhoods that are rich with opportunity."

At a meeting of the Regional Plan Association, Carrión spoke about the need for high-speed rail and promoted the idea of transit-oriented development.

Jarrett Murphy writes, "Carrión also said the administration would consider traffic control measures like encouraging bicycle use, water transport, "and maybe even-dare I say it?-congestion pricing," a reference to the toll proposal that Mayor Bloomberg championed but the state legislature quashed in 2008."
