After the completion of the <a href="https://www.valleymetro.org/project/south-central-extension-downtown-hub" target="_blank">South Central Downtown Hub</a> light rail extension, scheduled for 2025, the existing light rail line - the Phoenix Light Rail Main Line -  will become a multi-line system with the downtown Phoenix area serving as the center for system transfers. The FTA awards this TOD grant for Phoenix’s Light Rail Main Line that includes the <a href="/pdd/reinvent-phx" target="_blank">Reinvent PHX</a>, <a href="/pdd/tod/19north" target="_blank">19North</a>, downtown Phoenix and the 50th Street station areas.<br></p> <p>Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and Councilmembers expressed their support for the award: ​<br></p> <p>“Transit oriented development has been an inextricable part of our mission to build a Phoenix that works for everyone. This new grant will help us build a more dynamic city that seamlessly connects residents to work, the grocery store, to school or their doctor’s office—all without having to rely on a car. Together, we will continue working towards a more equitable city that prioritizes mixed-use projects,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. </p> <p>“This grant signifies continued progress for the City of Phoenix and for our residents,” said Phoenix Vice Mayor and Transportation, Infrastructure and Planning Subcommittee Chair Debra Stark. “Having access to a reliable and efficient transportation system helps strengthen our economy and revitalize our communities. This is a win-win not just for public transit accessibility but for all our community.”</p> <p> “We are excited to receive the Transit Oriented Development grant from the FTA,” said Councilwoman Ann O’Brien. “These funds are important to the City’s continued effort to create transit-oriented communities. FTA funds are currently helping build the Metro Transit Oriented District, which is part of the Northwest Extension Phase II project.” </p> <p> “The City of Phoenix has achieved a great milestone in receiving this FTA grant. This will help us reach our goals to support our communities and create access to affordable housing and mixed-use development opportunities,” said Councilwoman Laura Pastor. </p> <p> “With the newly awarded TOD grant, the City of Phoenix can continue its efforts to create strategies around transit oriented development and equitable communities – congratulations to all our teams for securing these funds,” said Councilwoman Kesha Hodge Washington.“ </p> <p>This marks the 5th Transit Oriented Development (TOD) grant awarded to Phoenix under the <a href="https://www.transit.dot.gov/TODPilot" target="_blank">Transit Oriented Development Planning program</a>. <br></p> <p>The TOD funds will be utilized with the following primary goals in mind:<br></p> <p>• Evaluate current and projected growth and development.</p> <p>• Assess affordable housing and development opportunities with emphasis on city-owned, vacant and large development sites.</p> <p>• Make recommendations to streamline permitting for rental housing and other community visions.</p> <p>• Educate and engage community stakeholders on the various transit-oriented development growth opportunities.<br></p> <p>Phoenix is one of 20 cities to receive a portion of the <a href="https://www.transit.dot.gov/TOD" target="_blank">$17.6 million awarded​</a> in 16 states.<br><br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/publictransitNewspublic-transitLight rail in downtown PhoenixPublic Transit#Transportation2050 #T2050 #LightRailGrants #TransitOrientedDevelopment #TransitCommunities #FTA Transportation 2050, Transit Oriented Development, Transit Oriented Communities, Accessible Public Transit, Grants, Federal Transit AdministrationBrenda Yanez602-571-5895602-261-8254brenda.yanez@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/28/Brenda_Yanez.jpgCarmen DeAlba602-478-1166carmen.dealba@phoenix.govPhoenixMetroBus
