Transit-Oriented Development: Environmental and Public Benefits

Tuesday, February 27, 2018
The Lyceum, 227 Lawrence Street, Hartford, CT

Transit-Oriented Development is in demand for many reasons. It can fill the need for strategically-located affordable housing. It can increase property tax revenues by responding to market demand. It can power the economy by increasing consumer buying power in mixed use and commercial zones. It can enhance environmental quality by reducing automobile dependence, limiting highway congestion, promoting open space preservation, sparking denser energy-efficient development and encouraging brownfield remediation. This IForum will explore how natural allies — advocates for affordable housing, mass transit, energy conservation and environmental protection — can work together to focus on smart growth planning in conjunction with environmental quality and justice.
