Description: This webinar focuses on introducing participants to the benefits of land use and community development planning at the transit corridor scale, and offering on-the-ground examples of how to make corridor planning work. Planning at the corridor scale provides an important means for understanding how transit investments can influence the character of nearby communities. It integrates knowledge about both local and regional contexts, coordinates key stakeholders, and can support regional growth. Participants will hear from three different regions that have demonstrated successful and equitable corridor planning and the outcomes of these efforts thus far.
