Living Near Transit: TOD 201

From Greenbelt Alliance:

Santa Rosa has a great opportunity to create a complete and environmentally sustainable neighborhood near the North Santa Rosa SMART station. City staff and leaders are planning what will go where.

Join us on June 15 for “Living Near Transit: TOD 201.” Last summer, we visited transit-oriented development in the East Bay to learn what’s possible. Now let’s explore what we can do in Santa Rosa. We’ll start at the Northwest Santa Rosa Library at 5:30 p.m. and take an urban hike to look at places where new homes and shops could go in the area.

The tour is cosponsored by LandPaths, Friends of SMART, Greenbelt Alliance, Leadership Institute for Ecology and the Economy, Accountable Development Coalition, and Conservation Action Fund For Education.

If you’d like to attend this event you can RSVP online.
