TransForm: TransForum: All About GreenTRIP

12:40 PM PDT on March 29, 2010

"How can we get developments built with less parking and more walkability?

Learn how on April 20, when we'll talk about these issues and 'GreenTRIP', TransForm's new certification program.

For too long, outdated parking codes, traffic policies, zoning, and misconceptions have held back the kind of development that improves communities and enhances mobility for everyone.  Instead, we see oceans of concrete where there could be parks, sidewalks, shops, and services.

GreenTRIP certifies new residential and mixed-use developments that keep the number of new parking spaces as low as possible and offer incentives for new tenants to drive less (such as deep discounts on transit passes).

GreenTRIP is proving that new developments can be built with less parking and more walkability – and as a result, reduce traffic and emissions.  Five developments have been certified as "GreenTRIP" in San Jose, San Leandro, San Mateo, Berkeley, and Hayward as part of the pilot phase of the program.

We will showcase two of our GreenTRIP certified projects on April 20: Parker Place in Berkeley and The Crossings in San Leandro.Guest speakers will include Mark Rhoades (City Centric, developer of Parker Place) and Michael Gregory (Councilmember, City of San Leandro).

Ann Cheng, the GreenTRIP program manager, will lead a lively discussion of the program."
