Location, Location….Connection
  • National demographic trends and lifestyle preferences over the next 20 years will strongly favor development and investment in the following locations:
    • Walkable, diverse urban neighborhoods
    • Transit served locations
  • Middleborough could benefit from these trends
transit oriented development lessons learned from successful development nationally and regionally
Transit Oriented Development: Lessons Learned from Successful Development Nationally and Regionally
  • Successful Transit Oriented Development creates a sense of place/amenity around the station area—making it a good place to live or work, not just to get on a train. Key characteristics:
    • Compact and dense
    • Mix of uses with activity in all time periods
    • Walkable streets
  • Transit is an amenity for both residential and business uses; it can be an especially powerful factor in attracting residential development
  • Where commuter parking is provided at stations, it must be integrated with development and should be placed out of sight
  • Markets evolve over time and so can stations
