TOD GuideSouthern California is in the midst of a radical transformation driven by smart growth ideals and an influx of projected investment into new and existing transit. The key question facing our communities is this: how can planning and development happen so that everyone benefits and nobody is left behind? 

Public Counsel’s Community Development Project is proud to release Getting There Together: Tools to Advocate for Inclusive Development Near Transit. This guide is a Southern California housing advocates’ guide outlining legal tools for influencing affordable housing and land use and disposition policies in a new era of transit-oriented development and smart growth.  It sets forth selected strategies that can be used by advocates at the regional, local, neighborhood, and project-specific levels to meaningfully participate in shaping the landscape of our neighborhoods.
