The Southeast Florida Transit Oriented Development (SFTOD) Study was completed in June 2019 and 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 for the Tri-Rail Coastal Link (TRCL) along the FEC corridor in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties.  The work was funded by the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Transit-Oriented Development Planning Pilot Program.

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 future growth by creating a network of high-quality places connected by premium transit.  The Tri-Rail Coastal Link (TRCL) is viewed as the backbone of this program.

The SFRPC undertook: 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. The reports are available below and on the SFRTA TOD Corridor Studies webpage.
