There is a nationwide movement to focus new housing development in so-called urban in-fill areas located near mass transit facilities. Transit-oriented development, also known as “Smart Growth”, typically features mixed-use zoning that allows for multifamily housing structures with bottom-floor retail, pedestrian friendly walkways and access to trains, trolleys or buses.
On October 14, 2011 the San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) adopted a three-year work plan to facilitate transit-oriented affordable housing developments for workforce families and seniors.
SDHC is working in collaboration with the city of San Diego and the San Diego Association of Governments on a Sustainable Communities Plan to identify potential affordable housing sites that would fit the Smart Growth concept.
The San Diego Association of Governments, which is coordinating the region’s transit-oriented development, has $280 million in Transnet funding that will be awarded to competitive projects over the next four years.
