Hollywood, FL – The South Florida Regional Planning Council (SFRPC), the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council (TCRPC), and the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) are part of a multi-partner award from the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC). A collaborative, multi-agency effort created the Transit Oriented Development Education and Outreach Program to improve mobility, access, ridership, and land development potential for the Tri-Rail Commuter Rail Corridor in Southeast Florida.
Through an extensive outreach program, local governments and stakeholder agencies were able to increase engagement and expand understanding. A regional Idea Exchange Network emerged through regional workshop discussions to help facilitate the adoption of Transit Oriented Development policies, codes, and approval of projects.
NARC said the program established a more collaborative relationship between local government, MPOs, FDOT, RPCs, and the SFRTA as a resource and development partner for station-area land development and infrastructure investments.
