Does ETOD financing keep you awake at night? Transit orientation, appropriate parking ratios, structured parking and community desires for higher-quality products and public spaces around rail stations all add to the costs of completion and, in turn, can make financing more difficult to obtain. Adding affordable housing to the mix makes things even more difficult. But in an era of increasing income disparity, the importance of providing equitable housing near our transit systems looms large. Hear from developers about the financial tools they have used to ensure a wide range of financial accessibility to their transit-oriented projects. Seeing how the financial puzzle can be solved with insights and examples from people who have made it work. Then, get some sleep.
