Transit-Oriented Development Webinars
The Center for Transit-Oriented Development (CTOD) hosted the first in its monthly webinars on June 21. More than 200 people participated in the discussion of “Understanding Mixed-Income Transit-Oriented Development.” The webinar was sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and may be viewed at http://reconnectingamerica.org/assets/Uploads/091030ra201mixedhousefinal.pdf.
