Making Smart Choices: Transit-Oriented Development Selector Analysis of South Suburban Corridors

The South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association (SSMMA) is working to build transitoriented development (TOD) at the most intense level consistent with local community desires and market conditions throughout the south suburbs. By facilitating TOD SSMMA intends to increase the supply of quality mixed-income housing, revitalize local commercial districts, generate a significant number of jobs, build the local tax base, improve member communities’ capacities to foster development, increase transit usage, create viable alternatives to automobile use, and so improve the quality of life and natural environment in the southern suburbs and the metropolitan area.
