The Transit Cooperative Research Program funds and publishes a bunch of interesting research each year. They recently had a call for proposals on a new project:
TCRP H-57: Guide to Joint Development for Public Transportation Agencies.
Per the RFP: "The objective of this study is to produce a guide that facilitates and enhances the successful delivery of joint development projects. This guide may take a variety of formats but should include requirements, procedures, and tools and techniques for transit agencies that want to pursue or improve their joint development programs. The guide should serve agencies with a range of experience related to land use planning issues and/or in executing complex real estate transactions."
Did you submit a proposal? Our team has our fingers crossed!
