Lighting a SPARCC Under Equitable Transit-Oriented Development
The Strong, Prosperous, And Resilient Communities Challenge
This publication by the Strong, Prosperous, And Resilient Communities Challenge (SPARCC) offers a definition of equitable Transit-Oriented Development (eTOD) and spotlights work underway in SPARCC regions.
Successful eTOD requires planning not just for transit but for how this type of catalytic investment will advance larger community needs including affordable housing, workforce and small business development, improved community health outcomes, and environmental clean-up. Achieving equitable outcomes
involves an inclusive planning process during the transit planning and community development phases. SPARCC regions are at the forefront of this transformation.
