John Flaherty is joined by guest, Christopher Coes, to discuss transit oriented development opportunities in Rhode Island.
Cities and towns across our region and the nation are seizing on the public-private partnership opportunities to build stronger, more vibrant and sustainable communities through transit-oriented development.
With major transit projects currently in the works, increased demand for housing in walkable urban neighborhoods and job sites with convenient access to transit, Rhode Island is poised to take advantage of these trends to grow smart with transit.
Christopher Coes is the Vice President of Real Estate Policy and External Affairs at Smart Growth America.
