North Shore Massachusetts Transformative Transit-Oriented Development Regional Forum

A North Shore Massachusetts Transformative Transit-Oriented Development Regional Forum, at the Lynn Museum and hosted by the Massachusetts Institute for a New Commonwealth (MassINC) took place on June 19th. The forum was held to explore how Lynn, Peabody, Salem, and other cities are using TOD to transform their cities and surrounding communities
In the MassINC report, “The Promise and Potential of Transformative Transit-Oriented Development in Gateway Cities,” the executive summary reads that gateway cities can accommodate thousands of new housing units and thousands of new jobs on the vacant and underutilized land surrounding their commuter rail stations. The walkable, mixed-use urban land offers an ideal setting for a transit-oriented development.
