Transit Oriented Workforce Housing Assessment

Name Transit Oriented Workforce Housing Assessment

The Bay Area once again has the highest housing costs in the nation, and the production of affordable housing is falling short of regional housing needs. One opportunity to address this issue is to leverage current and planned investments in transit in the region, with a particular emphasis in the west bay where housing costs are highest.  This study will assess under-utilized publicly-owned lands near rail stations in Priority Development Areas (PDAs), with an emphasis on evaluating the potential for affordable housing within mixed-income and mixed-use developments.  This project will focus on stations served by Sonoma Marin Area Rapid Transit (SMART), Caltrain, and Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority (VTA).  Similar efforts related to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and the City and County of San Francisco will be incorporated into this study to the extent possible. Other Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridors and transit operator services areas will be added if the project budget permits.  This study will build upon 15 years of MTC support for transit supportive development via the Transportation for Livable Communities and Priority Development Planning grant programs, MTC’s Resolution 3434 Transit Oriented Development policy, the Transit Oriented Affordable Housing fund, and the One Bay Area Grant program.

The study will create a single data base of under-utilized public lands in passenger rail (and BRT as feasible) corridors that will serve to provide a comprehensive listing of sites that may be utilized for infill development, particularly for housing.  They study and its associated findings may be utilized by MTC to inform future TOD planning, policy, and programming activities.  It will also be publically available for use by other agencies.
