Towns Should Build On Their Transit Stops

Only about half the Connecticut communities along the Metro-North New Haven Division rail line have adopted plans to foster development around their railroad stations. That's the conclusion of a study released last month by the Regional Plan Association. The study's authors looked at more than 40 commuter rail stations along the shoreline rail corridor and its branch lines to see if the communities had a vision for the potential of TOD, land-use regulations to support it and parking rules to encourage it.
