Getting It Done: TOD Workshop Series

Participants in a TOD workshop.

In 2010, LISC, CTOD, and others hosted a series of technical workshops on transit-oriented development (TOD). The purpose of these sessions is to strengthen the local implementation of transit-oriented districts along the existing and emerging LRT, BRT, and commuter lines throughout the Twin Cities region.

This page serves as a repository for the workshops' discussions and findings. Each of the sessions has a separate page, where powerpoint presentations and notes from the session can be found.

For an overview of the entire series, review the powerpoint and pdf below:

Transit-Oriented Development, or TOD, is typically defined as more compact development within easy walking distance of transit stations (typically a half mile) that contains a mix of uses such as housing, jobs, shops, restaurants and entertainment. TOD is about creating walkable, sustainable communities for people of all ages and incomes and providing more transportation and housing choices. These neighborhoods provide for a lifestyle that's convenient, affordable and active, and create places where our children can play and our parents can grow old comfortably.
