As Fort Lauderdale continues to grow and mature as the County's regional metropolitan area, protecting and enhancing the quality of life of neighbors and visitors is an essential component of future planning efforts. From a big picture perspective, transportation and sustainability have been identified as the City's top two goals. Building communities that are easy to access and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities is central to meeting these goals.
The Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Study will examine how to bring transit-oriented development to downtown Fort Lauderdale. Improving connections infrastructure investment, as well as making the surrounding areas more accessible and walkable, will help increase transit use, reduce the number of people driving and roadway congestion, and create a more livable city for everyone. The study will provide a blueprint for future development to create an economically viable and easily accessible area that is centered around access, vibrancy and livability.
The TOD Study is funded by a $1.25 million Federal Transit Administration TOD planning grant.
