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


Massachusetts successes
