Transportation and Housing

Communities benefit when transportation, housing and commercial development work cooperatively. Finding ways to accomplish a mutually supportive relationship between these elements can have positive results.

The results include less traffic congestion and air pollution, lower costs for housing and transportation, lower labor costs for employers and reduced expenses for families, preservation of open space and heritage, mitigation of the jobs/housing mismatch, more efficient and environmentally-friendly land uses, and greater choices in development patterns, housing types, and transportation services.

Contact the Community Design Assistance Manager for help integrating and connecting existing or new housing and transportation.
