This report was awarded the New Jersey chapter of the American Planning Association Outstanding Planning Implementation Award. It presents an analysis of opportunities for transit-oriented development in Somerset County. In direct consultation with county residents, the team produced station-area plans and implementation strategies for three locations along NJ Transit’s Raritan Valley Line. These conceptual visions provide a guide for municipalities to effectively implement TOD planning at the local level, focusing particularly on design, regulatory policy and financial strategies.
