MakingItHappen_ExecSum_V1R4_Web_001

Commissioned by the Capitol Region Council of Governments and the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission on behalf of the Sustainable Knowledge Corridor Consortium, this study was intended to help public and private parties capitalize on major federal and state infrastructure investment through identifying market-based TOD opportunities that exist around the planned NHHS and Vermonter Rail, and CTfastrak BRT systems. The study presents these opportunities within a corridor context, while incorporating national, regional and local analysis of demographic, economic and real estate market conditions. The Executive Summary outlines six key findings, specific state investment and anchor institution strategies and a TOD typology that describes the context for new development at each station area location. More information on this HUD-funded project can be found on the Sustainable Knowledge Corridor website.
