Infrastructure Financing for Transit-Oriented Development

In This Article:

A new EPA report, Infrastructure Financing Options for Transit-Oriented Development, provides examples of how some communities are using specific tools for individual infrastructure components, as well as strategies for combining and bundling tools to create plans that address construction phasing and market growth over time.  Four communities – Cobb County and the Cumberland Community Improvement District, Georgia; the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association, Illinois; the Utah Transit Authority, Salt Lake City, and Sandy City, Utah; and the city of Wheat Ridge, Colorado – are featured.  The report identifies dozens of financing mechanisms and strategies, showcases 11 communities using these tools, introduces four innovative models for TOD planning, and explains how community context and market factors affect the types of financing tools or funding strategies that communities can use. Click here to download the report.
