APA TOD Workshop - Saturday, July 30

The American Planning Association Los Angeles Chapter is hosting a workshop that will explore the Metro Goldline heading towards Sierra Madre and some of the station location’s transit oriented development (TOD) potential.
This workshop will occur on Saturday, July 30th, and will be offered for 2.5 CM credits; The APA is hosting this workshop due to the present push of SB 375, TOD planning has become the new hot topic and preferred tool of choice for planners, developers, and cities to implement as a part of their sustainable community strategy in order for these cities and agencies to meet their SB 375 goals. The workshop will consist of two parts with the goal of educating planners on the creation, implementation, and complexity of TOD. The first part of the workshop will be a tour on the Metro Goldline to identify the various types of potential TOD station locations. The tour will consist of stopping at 4 different Goldline stations and evaluating their effectiveness as TOD station locations. The 4 locations will be Lincoln Heights/Cypress, Mission, Filmore, and Lake Station. James Rojas will lead the tour. Following the tour, the participants will meet for a technical workshop with sustainability consultant Ryan Lehman from Living Streets LA and Eric Salcido, Director of Development for Primestor Development, who will give a presentation regarding the unique retail market perspective for Transit-Oriented Development.
