VTA Reviews County Development Boom (Part 2)

 | 




As a multi modal transportation authority serving as both Santa Clara County's transit operator and Congestion Management Agency, VTA provides cities, the county and other agencies with tools and resources for countywide transportation and land use decision-making. This series highlights local land use plans and developments to encourage a dialogue about the critical link between transportation and land use in creating high-quality, sustainable communities. 

VTA recently released its second “Development Review Annual Report” based on our review of proposed development and transportation projects throughout Santa Clara County. This blog post is the second part of a two-part series on VTA’s Development Review Program and our annual report for 2015.

The first post provided an overview of VTA’s 2015 Development Review activities and highlighted two major themes from the report: Major Projects and Plans, and Emerging Mixed-Use Districts. This post highlights three more keys themes from the 2015 report.
