You Can Get There From Here – The Importance of TOD and Overcoming Barriers to Its Implementation

On Friday, December 5, 2014, the Land Use Law Center held its Annual Land Use and Sustainable Development Conference at Pace Law School. The TOD LINE sponsored a panel with national and regional TOD experts that highlighted the importance of TOD to the New York metropolitan area, identified regulatory, institutional and social barriers to TOD development, and discussed ways that communities can address these hurdles. Robert Paley, Director of TOD at the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), led the discussion with presentations offered by Amanda Kennedy, Connecticut Director of the Regional Plan Association; Larry Gould, Principal at NelsonNygaard Consulting Associates; and Justin Lapatine, Partner, Public Affairs at the Global Strategy Group.
