Circulate San Diego released a report earlier this month on how the City of San Diego can better implement transit oriented development (“TOD”). TOD benefits housing affordability, economic development, and the climate. However, a variety of barriers exist to prevent TOD in San Diego.

This report recommends a variety of specific, detailed, and actionable policy reforms that can be adopted city-wide to implement TOD.

The full report can be viewed online at http://www.circulatesd.org/todreport

In addition, the Voice of San Diego expanded its coverage of the regional housing shortage with two articles examining the issue:
