The Southeast Florida Transit Oriented Development (SFTOD) Study is the result of a partnership between the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) and the South Florida and Treasure Coast Regional Planning Councils (RPCs) to undertake TOD planning work along the FEC corridor in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties. This work is being funded by the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Transit-Oriented Development Planning Pilot Program. The grant was obligated at the end of 2016 and the work will be completed by 2018.
Through this work, the RPCs seek to implement the Seven50: Southeast Florida Prosperity Plan “Region in Motion” vision developed by the Southeast Florida Regional Partnership through the U.S. HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program. This vision accommodates strong future growth by creating a network of high quality places connected by premium transit. The Tri-Rail Coastal Link (TRCL) line is viewed of the backbone of this program.
The SFTOD Study will undertake: station area planning with partner municipalities; an affordable housing study; station area bicycle and pedestrian planning; corridor wide water and wastewater analysis; and a regional Transportation-Oriented Development fund business plan. To ensure active engagement of relevant stakeholders, there will also be an outreach, community engagement, and equity plan.
