With funding from the HUD Sustainable Communities program and the Living Cities Integration Initiative, Corridors of Opportunity partners engaged in nearly two dozen planning and implementation activities to advance a vision where:
- The region has more options for how people get around and where they can choose to live and work;
- Development along transitways can pave the way for economic prosperity for people of all backgrounds;
- Historically under-represented populations have a meaningful role in decision-making related to transit and development, and;
- It is easier and a high priority to develop along transitways.
The work spanned from direct investment in real estate projects and small business development to comprehensive corridor-wide planning and intensive community engagement. The work also included demonstration projects – designed to test theories on one corridor and potentially scale to others; tool development; and policy analysis.
