Title

Overview of Transit-Oriented Development Guidebook for Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit (DOLRT) (30 minutes)

Patrick McDonough, GoTriangle

 

Narrative

In the fall of 2016, GoTriangle and Gateway Planning initiated a federal-grant-funded study of TOD opportunities for the neighborhoods around the stations along the Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit (D-O LRT) corridor. As the jurisdictions regulating land use in the corridor, the Town of Chapel Hill, the City of Durham, and Durham County staff were partners in the successful grant application and in the subsequent work, which was completed in December 2018. The primary output of this work is the TOD Guidebook, a document detailing “One Possible Future” for neighborhoods along the D-O LRT line, and a series of public policy recommendations and Action Steps for local governments to realize the outcomes in the concept plans for each station.

 

The TOD Guidebook is a series of light rail station area concept plans and associated public policy Action Step recommendations for:

                     Zoning

                     Affordable Housing

                     Station Area Infrastructure

                     Streets and Public Space

                     Parking

 

The TOD Guidebook also focuses on Prioritization and Partnerships for how to link goals in these areas across multiple departments and agencies in Durham and Chapel Hill.

 

GoTriangle staff will present an overview of the recommendations in the TOD Guidebook. The entire TOD Guidebook can be viewed at <https://gotriangle.org/sites/default/files/tod_guidebook_full_report_with_appendices.pdf>.
