Transit Oriented Development Workshop
By DuPage Mayors and Managers

The Conference is excited to host a Transit Oriented Development Workshop on Monday, April 10, 2017. DuPage County is continuing to mature and experience increased traffic congestion as well as depletion of places to accommodate new homes and businesses. However, there is a trend in community development that allows communities to mitigate both of these issues. Known as Transit Oriented Development (or TOD), this urban planning tool encourages vibrant, livable, sustainable, car-optional communities for residents of all ages and incomes. With an evolution in mobility upon us, including an ever changing ride sharing industry, a continual desire from residents to be less reliant on their car for transportation, as well as a future that could see autonomous cars, TOD allows communities to meet these changes with compatible land use to help them thrive.

The workshop will have presentations from Than Werner, Planning and Zoning Administrator for the City of Elmhurst, Kendra Freeman, Manager for the Metropolitan Planning Council, Colin Murphy, Researcher for Shared-Use Mobility Center, and Kristen Andersen, Principal Planner for Metra Commuter Rail.

Whether you are a mayor, manager, or community development staff member, this workshop will provide insight from peer DuPage communities and transportation industry experts about what TOD is, how it has benefited DuPage communities, and how it could benefit your community.
