MassINC presents on Gateway City TOD at LOCUS Summit

Discussing smart growth issues across the region

On October 24th, LOCUS New England, a division of Smart Growth America, convened real estate developers, investors, and elected officials to share ideas and discuss smart growth issues across the region. MassINC’s Research Director, Ben Forman, joined other smart growth experts for a panel discussion on “Promoting Infill Development in Transit Corridors.” The conversation touched on how the state’s Housing Development Incentive Program (HDIP) can be used to make residential projects pencil out, how the state’s Chapter 40R program can insulate developers from frivolous law suits, and the promise of the new federal Opportunity Zone program for transit-oriented development in Gateway Cities.
