YPG Workshop on Goldline TOD - July 23, 2011

The Metro Goldline heading towards Sierra Madre represent a large set of potential Transit Oriented Development (TOD) stations.  Some of these stations possess stronger characteristics of TOD than others.  Successful TOD stations have proven to be huge components in sustainability plans, as they can help significantly reduce GHG emissions.  With the present push of SB 375, TOD planning has become the new hot topic and preferred tool of choice for planners, developers, and cities to implement as apart of their sustainable community strategy in order for these cities and agencies to meet their SB 375 goals.

APA LA is partnering with the City of Pasadena's Planning and Transportation departments to educate and display the great TOD elements found in the City of Pasadena.

Program Info:
The workshop will consist of two parts with the goal of educating planners on the creation, implementation, and complexity of TOD.  The first part of the workshop will be a tour on the Metro Goldline to identify the various types of potential TOD station locations.  The tour will consist of stopping at 4 different Goldline stations and evaluating their effectiveness as TOD station locations. The tour will start at 10:00 AM at the Chinatown Gold Line station.  James Rojas will lead the tour.  Following the tour, the participants will meet at the City of Pasadena for a technical workshop with sustainability consultant Ryan Lehman from Living Streets LA and Eric Salcido, from Primestor Development, will give a presentation regarding the retail market perspective for redevelopment TOD sites.
