Round 5 of Metro’s Transit Oriented Development Planning Grant Program (TOD Grant)
Metro supports local governments in advancing community-driven, comprehensive transit supportive planning.
The TOD Grant funded the following:
- The development of comprehensive Transit Supportive Regulatory Plans. Using Metro’s Transit Supportive Planning Toolkit as the framework, Metro will fund cities to develop and adopt regulatory documents (e.g. specific plans, general plan amendments, zoning code amendments and similar) along with the corresponding environmental clearance; OR
- The Transit Oriented Communities Tax Increment Financing (TOC TIF) Pilot Program, which will fund studies that assess the feasibility of creating tax increment financing districts (Community Revitalization and Investment Areas (CRIA) or Enhanced Infrastructure Financing Districts (EIFD) in areas that comply with the Program Guidelines, meet state criteria and have transit-supportive regulatory documents in place or under development.
At Metro’s Board Meeting on March 1, 2018, approved the implementation of seven municipalities transit-supportive planning grants and studies that assess the feasibility of creating tax increment financing districts such as CRIA or EIFD.
