LYNX Silver Line

In 2019, CATS in partnership with Charlotte Planning, Design + Development Department, City of Gastonia, City of Belmont, Town of Matthews, Town of Stallings, and Town of Indian Trail received a planning grant from the Federal Transit Administration. The grant would allow the CATS and partners to evaluate Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) along the proposed LYNX Silver Line light rail project.

Through the study, the team will develop:

·         Develop Station Area Plans

·         Outline Infrastructure Investments

·         Assess TOD Market Readiness

·         Perform an Affordable Housing Evaluation 

Throughout the study, the team will engage with the public through surveys, workshops and a series of public and community meetings.

ULI Charlotte: City of Charlotte's TOD Symposium Series - Equitable TOD: Building Equity as Part of Transit & TOD


When: May 27th, 1PM - 3PM

Where: gotowebinar

Event Description: 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.
