Connecticut Officials, TOD Advocates Tour New Jersey’s Transit Villages

Dec 14th, 2012 | By | Category: Transportation

Interest in transit-oriented development (TOD) within Connecticut has rarely been higher. After releasing TOD grants to several cities and towns last year, the state has also moved forward on a TOD project in Stamford. A summer forum on TOD organized by the Partnership for Strong Communities drew a packed house and featured leaders from several state agencies.

Building on this momentum, TSTC and advocates brought state and local officials from Connecticut to see examples of successfully implemented TOD in northern New Jersey last week. The tour was organized by the TSTC and NJ Transit, with the generous support of the One Region Funders’ Group. The event was co-sponsored by the Connecticut Fund for the Environment, Partnership for Strong Communities and Regional Plan Association.
