PLANNING PROCESS Transit Oriented Development Transit Oriented Development − Development with a functional relationship to transit, allowing it to achieve synergies that enhance value to both − Strategy to manage Station Area Smart Growth and support ridership − Tool to protect, leverage and enhance Railroad assets, improve customer benefits and support community revitalization − Alternative to the consequences of suburban sprawl Transit Oriented Development Transit Oriented Development − Development with a functional relationship to transit, allowing it to achieve synergies that enhance value to both − Strategy to manage Station Area Smart Growth and support ridership − Tool to protect, leverage and enhance Railroad assets, improve customer benefits and support community revitalization − Alternative to the consequences of suburban sprawl

15 Smart Growth Station Area Master Planning & T.O.D. Process Case Study: BEACON Govan

16 CITY OF BEACON Context Context – Beacon has a rich history and industrial roots, located on the Hudson River – Beacon has had a Station for over 150 years – Undergoing a cultural and economic “renaissance” Today Today – – Mix of industrial and commercial enterprises transforming its identity into a city of cultural and tourist related attractions, complemented by centers for environmental research and supported by excellent rail connectivity. – – Unprecedented increase in rail ridership; 50% in the last 5 years causing parking shortfalls despite expansion projects. 40% ridership growth expected in next 10 years Context Context – Beacon has a rich history and industrial roots, located on the Hudson River – Beacon has had a Station for over 150 years – Undergoing a cultural and economic “renaissance” Today Today – – Mix of industrial and commercial enterprises transforming its identity into a city of cultural and tourist related attractions, complemented by centers for environmental research and supported by excellent rail connectivity. – – Unprecedented increase in rail ridership; 50% in the last 5 years causing parking shortfalls despite expansion projects. 40% ridership growth expected in next 10 years
