Transit Oriented Development
The 2000 Measure B Transportation Expenditure Plan provides for programmatic expenditures for Transit Center Development in the amount of 0.19 percent of net revenues, estimated to total $2.7 million over the life of the sales tax program in 1998 dollars. Approximately $185,000 to $190,000 is generated annually.
According to the Expenditure Plan, these funds are "available to cities in the county and to Alameda County to encourage residential and retail development near transit centers." Therefore, by definition, nonprofit agencies and transit operators are not directly eligible for these funds.
Transit Center Development funds are used as:
- The local match portion of MTC's Transit for Living Communities (TLC) program for planning and capital. TLC is MTC's Transit Oriented Development (TOD) program related to Resolution 3434 transit expansion projects, a County level TLC program
- A match to the MTC Transportation and Land Use (T-PLUS) program for a Transit Oriented Development - Technical Assistance Program (TOD-TAP).
