TOD Main Street and 12th


Christina Hoxie played a central role in drafting Kansas City’s Transit-Oriented Development Policy. With the success of the Streetcar and new high service bus routes, development has accelerated in the city’s transit corridors. It is becoming necessary to more carefully consider the values that should inform policy, design decisions, and public investments in the area. Kansas City’s adopted Transit-Oriented Development Policy provides a comprehensive set of recommendations based on best practices from peer cities. 


The Kansas City Tranist-Oriented Development Policy document organizes these best practices into recommendations related to Connectivity, Density, Development, and Design. It then relates those recommendations to other citywide strategies, and defines the public, private, and non-profit champions for implementation of the recommendations. The document is organized for maximum clarity and legibility for policymakers, stakeholders, and the greater public. Cross-sector recommendations inform zoning, design guideline development, tax incentive policy, and process coordination.
