Pilot Program for Transit Oriented Development Planning
Public comments will be received through May 17, 2019
The Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council (GBNRTC), the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Erie and Niagara Counties, is proposing to amend the 2017-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) by adding one (1) new project.
Project Identification Number 5900.51 - Pilot Program for Transit Oriented Development Planning
This project will develop a comprehensive plan that enacts regulatory amendments and incentives to support Transit Oriented Development (TOD) along the Amherst-Buffalo Metro Rail corridor, operationalize a Regional TOD Committee, capitalize a Regional TOD Fund, and implement value capture mechanisms to encourage sustainable development patterns throughout the corridor.
The estimated total cost of the project will be approximately $1,060,799, which includes $777,943 in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Pilot Program for TOO Planning funding, $97,243 in New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) matching funding, $97,243 in NFTA local matching funding and $88,370 in GBNRTC federal planning funding.
Fiscal constraint will be maintained as this is new funding to the region – FTA Section 20005(b).
