Community Building Partnerships
Great things can happen when communities work together to achieve successful projects — and ultimately, livable communities. Building livable communities requires understanding and cooperation among all participants — citizens, government agencies, transit agencies and developers. Successful projects all over the country continue to benefit from public and private partners who combine their expertise and who leverage each partner’s assets. This session explores how partnerships are formed, how to reduce risk for all partners, ways to achieve success, and lessons learned.

Providing Transportation Options in the Livable Community
Learn how to create and promote pedestrian, bike- and transit-friendly communities. Creating the livable community requires transportation options that are safe, convenient, attractive and sensitive to the community setting. Encouraging more people to bike, walk and take transit requires both well designed facilities and well thought out strategies. What really affects the way people travel? Is good infrastructure enough? Learn how good design and well-scaled facilities combine with car sharing, parking management, individualized marketing and other strategies to provide the optimal mix.

Redefining What We Expect From Joint Development
Find out what innovative strategies transit agencies are using as they implement effective joint development. Joint development is a subset of transit-oriented development — occurring in a manner that is project-specific and on, or adjacent to, a public agency’s land (usually a public transit agency). However, the small parcels of land normally owned by transit agencies have severely limited good, effective TOD potential. This session addresses some of those challenges and how communities can still rise to the occasion with joint development.

That's Not What I Meant!!! Hearing the Other Guy
Avoid misunderstandings and project delays by learning what different stakeholders mean when they use similar-sounding words. What do other people hear when words such as “TOD,” “planning” and “implementation” are used? This session includes discussion among a “values” pollster, an elected official, a technical expert in TOD typologies, and an agency official. They will discuss how planning can be used to facilitate and broker agreement and to assist in decision-making — as long as everyone is on the same page with effective communication strategies.

Getting the Most Bang for the Buck from Streetcars
Learn about the unique urban form associated with streetcars. See whether the streetcar is the right technology for your community and how to plan and zone for the best streetcar-oriented development. The streetcar is uniquely suited to promote a high-density, high-quality “New Urbanist” environment because it typically stops at every corner, integrates seamlessly into the streetscape, and generates an intensity of development and uses that makes for the best pedestrian neighborhoods. However, because streetcars stop so often, serve shorter trips, attract more non-work trips, and because the ’stations’ are so minimal, the kind of urban form they promote is different — more linear than the clustered development around other rail modes.

FTA's Guidelines on Systems Planning for Quality Transit Projects
Join this lively discussion with FTA and DOT experts, offer your perspectives and share lessons learned — with a goal of helping to shape the guidelines as a resource for planning new rail projects. Successful new rail transit projects have deep roots — in systems planning at the scale of the metropolitan area by transit agencies collaborating with MPOs and other partners. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is developing guidelines to improve key areas of systems planning that lay the foundation for major capital transit investments, including New Starts. These guidelines cover areas such as: identification of regional needs, a regional framework for land use, technical analysis and demand forecasting, early consideration of environmental issues, and financial planning.

Building a Bicycling Nation
Join these visionaries as they explore the possibilities and reality of making our cities great places to walk, to bike . . . and to live. Can American cities ever be as bicycle-friendly as Copenhagen, Denmark, where one-third of trips are made by bike? Will Chicagoans linger year-round at street cafes and pedestrian plazas as they do in Copenhagen? Jan Gehl played a key role in the transformation of his decidedly northern-tier hometown of Copenhagen during the past 30 years and has a vision for creating more human-scale cities in the future. Robert Wislow is a man who can help make that vision come true. A Chicago real estate developer, as well as Chairman of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, he believes passionately in the critical role of cities. Wislow has a history of financing, building and selling the infrastructure that affects the walking and bicycling environment.

Expand your understanding of TOD and even learn how to recognize it when you see it! Experts have learned over the years that proximity of development to transit simply is not enough when it comes to creating a successful TOD. Instead, TOD projects must have three fundamental characteristics to enhance transit ridership: a mix of moderate to high intensity land uses, a physical or functional connection to the transit system, and design features that create a pedestrian-friendly environment. This workshop explores the properties of TOD and discusses ways to promote the most attractive and effective TOD for your community.

The Role of Parking in the Livable Community
Learn how parking can increase access to transit and support neighborhood needs, yet also serve TOD objectives. Parking is a perpetual paradox when it comes to building communities with transit. Even the most transit-oriented community requires parking for residents and businesses. Transit agencies also are faced with providing access for people not living near transit. Buried or structured parking can bankrupt the TOD project and exceed the scope of the transit project. But parking can be shared and managed in ways that mitigate some of these challenges. This workshop explores the various dimensions of parking near transit — development, financing, shared use, management and conversion.

TOD Investment Funds: Gold Mine or False Promise?
Participate in this conversation with investors, developers, transit agencies and cities as they discuss whether the real estate market can realistically sustain more TOD. Private capital is looking for a piece of dirt, and the real estate market has come to recognize the value of property near transit. For the past two years the respected ULI/PricewaterhouseCoopers “Emerging Trends in Real Estate” report ranked locations near transit as the No. 1 real estate choice, and in the past year a dozen TOD investment funds have been announced. Is there really enough deal flow to sustain investor expectations? Can projects really produce the short-term profits that investors expect? Is there no patient capital? Will the abundance of capital lead to more TOD or simply more frustration?

Who is Being Left out of TOD?
This session addresses how to move TODs away from a mostly “vanilla” demographic and toward a mix of families, income levels and racial diversity. In this session, we will explore the demographic trends around TOD and see if there is room for more diversity. Most TODs are geared toward young professionals or empty nesters. But what about couples with children, people who need affordable housing, and members of different ethnic groups? Can we have more diversity in TODs, and if so, what can we do to make it happen? Hear different perspectives from a market developer, an affordable housing advocate and a community activist.

Advocates Insider: What Agencies and Companies Listen To
Join this session with representatives from a state DOT, a transit agency, a private developer and a land use planner as they discuss how to get community support and advocacy behind a transit project. Success isn’t measured by being right — it’s measured by positive results. To get the needed agency and private sector support, it’s important to think about what the transit agencies, businesses and citizens want, need and value. This important principle has long range implications that affect funding, control of street access, density and design, and whether a community will support a development-friendly environment.
