It Takes A Transit Village
The Transportation and Land Use Coalition's (TALC) new report, It Takes a Transit Village, "kicked off a campaign calling on the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to condition over $12 billion of new transit investments on cities approving significant housing and designing walkable communities around existing and future transit stations. If MTC agrees to the policy, cities that want to continue putting big-box retail and regional malls in "Transit Opportunity Zones" would no longer be eligible to receive regional funding for transit expansions. According to the report taxpayers stand to save $1.8 billion per year with this form of 'smarter planning.' "
