Will Wright,   


Please join us Tuesday January 17, 2012 at 2:00 pm EST for the Center For Transit-Oriented Development (CTOD) webinar "Transit-Oriented Development and Climate Change". This webinar session is sponsored by The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and is open to planners, practitioners, housing advocates, MPOs, local, state and federal DOT's, transit agencies, sustainable communities grantees, advocates, as well as elected officials and other decision makers.


Hear from:

  • Tina Hodges, Program Analyst, FTA's Office of Budget and Policy
  • Linda Young, Research Director, Center for Neighborhood Technology
  • Peter Haas, Chief Research Scientist, Center for Neighborhood Technology
  • Mike McKeever, CEO, Sacramento Area Council of Governments

Description: This webinar will present research from CTOD analyzing the potential of transit-oriented development to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  Planning scenarios for four regions will be examined to contrast the GHG reduction potential of compact urban development near transit stations versus business as usual development. Also, hear from Mike McKeever of Sacramento Area Council of Governments and Tina Hodges at the Federal Transit Administration who will share their experience on GHG reduction through transportation and land use planning.  


Date: Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pmEST

These webinars are sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration and facilitated by The Center for Transit-Oriented Development.  The Center for Transit-Oriented Development (CTOD) is the only national nonprofit effort dedicated to providing best practices, research and tools to support equitable market-based transit-oriented development.  CTOD partners with both the public and private market sectors to strategize about ways to encourage the development of high performing communities around transit stations and to build transit systems that maximize development potential. CTOD works to integrate local and regional planning, generate new tools for economic development, real estate and investment issues, improve affordability and livability for all members of the community, and respond to imperatives for climate change and sustainability. The Center for TOD is a partnership of Reconnecting America, the Center for Neighborhood Technology, and Strategic Economics.  For more information go to CTOD's website at
