Los Angeles County TOD Toolkit

Los Angeles County, CA

Gruen Associates was a part of a team led by KOA to complete the Los Angeles County Transit-Oriented District (TOD) Toolkit: A Case Study involving the Atlantic/Whittier Station. The Toolkit establishes a framework for promoting high-quality affordable housing, increased mobility and accountability, improved and safe infrastructure, increased housing choices, healthy benefits through walking and biking, and reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The TOD Toolkit will support future TOD development by providing guidance to planners and engineers primarily on the establishment of public right-of-way infrastructure that would support associated higher-density development and facilitate active transportation and accessibility to transit; thereby, improving public health and safety, encouraging more affordable housing, as well as reducing GHG emissions and air pollutants in Los Angeles County.
