Goal for the Fellowship

Land Development and Transportation Policies- 6 case studies

My goal for the fellowship is to investigate the key transportation considerations in the planning and approval of a land use development project in Europe. I hope to identify lessons learned about policies that hinder and those that facilitate successful projects near major rail/transit stations. I would then analyze these practices for their applicability in California. Since California is very auto-centric, it often seems as if the automobile conditions trump all the other considerations. I hope to improve the way development projects are analyzed and the resulting conditions which are imposed upon them, so that development needs and impacts are looked at more holistically rather than one mode at a time.
