Housing Element Update

Program 6: Transit Oriented Districts Program

Transit Oriented Districts (TODs) are areas that will be established by the General Plan Update, within a 1/2 mile radius from a Metro transit stop, with development and design standards, and incentives to facilitate transit-oriented development. Eleven TODs will be located along the Metro Blue Line, Green Line, Gold Line, Gold Line Extension and near the Metro Silver Line.

In the General Plan Update, major corridors within a proposed TOD will be given a mixed use zoning and land use designation. These new regulations will allow by right mixed use and residential development, with densities of up to 150 dwelling units per acre.

All TODs will be implemented by TOD specific plans, with standards, regulations, and infrastructure plans that are tailored to the unique characteristics and needs of each community, and address issues such as access, connectivity, pedestrian improvements, and safety.

Objectives Complete Willowbrook TOD Specific Plan by 2016.

Policies Policy 2.1: Support the development of housing for low and moderate income households and those with special needs near employment and transit.
