April 27, 2020: TTOD Planning & Design Competition Award Ceremony
Grand Hall, Massachusetts Statehouse, Beacon Hill, Boston
Want to see what our Gateway Cities are doing to plan for Transformative TOD? Join us on April 27 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM in the Statehouse’s Grand Hall for a look at what’s happening and for the announcement of our 2020 Planning & Design Competition winner. The event will feature keynote speaker Karen Kelleher of Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), followed by a presentation from each of the project teams, the presentation of the award.
This competition connects student teams with Gateway City planning/development teams and community-based organizations/civic groups to create an innovative plan or project that will connect important places of activity and growth with high-capacity transit hubs. Each proposal can be a visionary plan, pilot program, or tactical project in transit-oriented districts (the half-mile areas around train stations or multimodal hubs).
Registration will be opening soon. For more information, contact the competition team at ttod at massinc.org.
Save the Dates! TTOD Regional Forums
MassINC’s Transformative Transit-Oriented Development (TTOD) Regional Forums bring together civic, community, and political leaders from throughout the region to learn, discuss, and strategize ways to advance Gateway Cities as regional hubs for investment, development, and growth.
The forums build on the themes outlined in MassINC’s 2018 report, The Promise and Potential of Transformative Transit-Oriented Development in Gateway Cities, promoting compact, dense, walkable development around rail stations as well as more frequent, reliable, bidirectional rail service.
For 2020, the events build on the 2019 forums by discussing how equity can advance TTOD through land use, transportation, and economic development. MassINC and the event’s co-sponsors welcome your attendance and support of this civic engagement and learning experience.
