If you want to learn about plans on Long Island for transit-oriented development -- TOD for short -- you can look into an upcoming panel discussion January 18, sponsored by the Society for Marketing Professional Services, Long Island chapter.
Such development has to do with “creating vibrant, livable communities near train lines,” this with an eye to cutting down traffic jams, helping the environment and making for more community-oriented downtowns.
Among the planned speakers: Elisa Picca, chief planning officer, Long Island Rail Road; Brandon Palanker, director of new business development, Renaissance Downtowns; as well as representatives from the New York Office of Smart Growth, Vision Long Island, the Town of Brookhaven.
