    Equitable Transit-Oriented Development (eTOD) enables all people regardless of income, race, ethnicity, age, gender, or ability to experience the benefits of dense, mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented development near transit. Come and hear a lively panel discussion on how thoughtful eTOD strategies on affordable housing, public health, and strong local businesses can address historical impacts and gaps in communities as well as mitigate for unintended displacements from transit investments. The panel will also cover practical approaches to overcoming institutional challenges related to funding and financing, coalition building, and getting to early eTOD wins.
